Social-distancing? Shelter-in-place? Sickness? It’s enough to make anyone feel down these days. Express your feelings, and transform your Coronavirus (or other) blues into Blues Poetry in a class with librarian and California Poets in the Schools teacher, Lea Aschkenas. In this class for 4th through 7th graders, Lea will give a brief historical background of Blues music and poetry, share sample poems (some written by past students), and lead participants in an exercise to produce at least one original blues poem. Send your poems to her after the class, and we’ll publish them on the San Rafael Public Library website!
