Author Donté Clark, ex-poet laureate of Richmond, reads from his latest book Close Caskets. Close Caskets, is an intergenerational collection of poems about life in Richmond, California from the perspective of author, activist, educator, and actor Donté Clark. Clark delivers a visceral interpretation of how his world view was shaped by his location ̶ a landscape that placed him in the middle of trauma, love, hardship and triumph.
Do you like to be creative, find new ways to express yourself and relieve stress? Join us for a workshop reading ancient myths, discussing the works of art and literature that they have inspired, and making our own myth-inspired stories, poems, and songs!
In this six-week workshop, we take a playful approach to the stories of ancient Greece, and the creatively powerful images within them. In each unit, we will read a famous myth, explore interpretations by creators from different times, learn techniques for getting started in a new creative genre, and share what we create!
