Poet and children’s author Krystyna Poray Goddu leads a workshop for children entitled, “Writing Poetry with Emily Dickinson & Edna St. Vincent Millay.” The author looks at both poets’ nature-focused poetry and opportunities for participants of all ages to write their own poems.
Goddu’s latest book, Becoming Emily: The Life of Emily Dickinson, introduces middle-grade readers to the life and work of the enigmatic American poet Emily Dickinson. Publishers Weekly called the book “a lively and effective introduction to Dickinson’s life and work.” Kirkus Reviews, called it a “thorough study [that] is sure to entice middle-grade readers to explore one of the 19th century’s greatest poets.” Her earlier biography, A Girl Called Vincent, was named a Eureka! Honor Book Award by the California Reading Association.
Registration through the library's calendar is required. More information about the Saratoga Book Festival can be found at www.saratogabookfestival.org.
