Thurber House is pleased to be the starting point for the 2014 Children's Poetry Story Box Project. Join us at Thurber Center, 91 Jefferson Avenue, on February 24 at 7 p.m. where you can finish poems started by nationally recognized poets that will be placed in the Story Box to travel around the world. You will have a chance to listen to former Children's Poet Laurette, J. Patrick Lewis, along with other special guests who will be reading poetry and telling their stories. Help us celebrate the official launch for a project that will bring people from all corners of the world together through the written word. No R.S.V.P is necessary and the program is free to attend. Please contact Meg Brown at megbrown@thurberhouse.org with any questions.
