How We, Too, Can Sing America: Poetry Reading and Writing Workshop

  • Jericho Town Library 7 Jericho Street Jericho Center, VT 05465 United States (map)

Langston Hughes’ poem “I, Too, Sing America” rings as true in 2017 as it did when he wrote it in 1938. Each of us, too, has a song to sing as an American. Using Hughes’ poem and Jacqueline Woodson’s poem “what i believe” as touchstones, we will read and explore these two poems, then write our own responses.

This event will be held at the Jericho Town Library.
