Each year Poetry Paths offers poetry workshops and enrichment activities for over one hundred schoolchildren from the School District of Lancaster. We invite you to celebrate this yearâ€™s young writers from Hand Middle School, Martin School, and King Elementary School!
Please join us on Wednesday, May 16, 6:30pm at the Roschel Performing Arts Center at Franklin & Marshall College, 630 College Avenue, Lancaster, PA.Â
Our student poets have found their own inspiration in the work of Pennsylvania College of Art & Design students, Church World Service, the Millport Conservancy, Poetry Paths sculptures and murals, Thaddeus Stevens and the Underground Railroad, and their own neighborhoods. Many of the students are immigrants to Lancaster, and they have also written beautifully about the homelands they left behind in their brave journeys to this place.
Music will be provided by the Music for Everyone String Ensemble, and there will be a reception following the reading.
