Two special events to dig deeper into poetry and connect with community are scheduled this January! All are invited to come celebrate Carrboro's rich arts history and meet community members at these free and open events.
Unearthing Ourselves! is a one-hour poetry workshop led by Carrboro Poet Laureate Liza Wolff-Francis. The workshop will take place from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, in Room 110 at Carrboro Town Hall, 301 W. Main St.
Poets’ Party: An Evening of Community Poetry is set for 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28, at the Carrboro Century Center, 100 N. Greensboro St. The Town of Carrboro and the Poets' Council will recognize the longstanding Carrboro Poet Laureate program with former poet laureates reading as well as a few guest poets; a special thanks to Fred Joiner, Carrboro's outgoing poet laureate; and a welcome to Liza Wolff-Francis, Carrboro's newest poet laureate.
