Denee Barr Art News and More

Enriching, Enlightening, Engaging......that's how I would describe Howard County Poetry and Literary Society (HoCoPolitso) program Poetry & Nature: A Family Affair with Jane Hirshfield at the Howard County Conservancy on Sunday, October 7th. Ms. Hirshfield mesmorized the audience with readings from her award winning books including selections from her current 2006 publication After Jane Hirshfield Poems. And the children in attendance were treated to a nature walk around the Howard County Conservancy and they learned how to write Haiku, a form of Japanese poetry led by talented Columbia, Maryland writer Tim Singleton.

Make Art a Lifestyle..................Enjoy the Day, Denee
