Bookshop Introduction: Spoken Word Poetry and Collage

We had a great first meeting, filled with introductions, pizza, and interesting discussion about the picture book we read aloud, Knock Knock: My Dad's Dream for Me, by Daniel Beatty. We watched Beatty's spoken word performance of the poem as well:

Then we created our own collages inspired by Bryan Collier's beautiful collage illustrations in the picture book version.

Our next meeting is on Monday, November 30, at 5:30. We will be discussing the hilarious graphic novel space adventure, Cleopatra in Space: Target Practice, by Mike Maihack (feel free to read the second volume, Cleopatra in Space: The Thief and the Sword, too!) and creating our own comics using ToonDoo, a fun online comic-creation tool. There's plenty of space left so call Emily at 857-235-9847 or email her at to register.
