April is National Poetry Month!
Check out these awesome Book Title Poems by our Creative Writing group!
ten tiny babies survive a flood,
vikings found our choice,
bison be safe around strangers,
cocker spaniels call it courage

In the city of bones,
There lives a Queen of Shadows.
She wears a cruel crown,
one shrouded in plague,
and fear.
A ghost roams the streets,
bringing and ice like fire.
He lives among the blood rose,
and the night shade too.

"Abigail, tell me three things."
"I am half-sick of shadows.
We could be beautiful pictures of perfection.
I've got you under my skin."
"Hold still,
If you feel too much, promise me,
At the edge of the orchard where the lilies bloom,
never let me go."

From Mickey to Magoo: The Golden Age of American Animation
Friday, May 19, 2017 - 6:30pm
From the 1920s to the 1960s, adult American theatergoers could anticipate a cartoon before each feature film. From Mickey Mouse to Donald Duck, Popeye, Betty Boop, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tom and Jerry, Mighty Mouse, Casper the Friendly Ghost, and Mr. Magoo, the beloved cartoon "stars" were every bit as memorable as the Hollywood actors who shared the marquee. Many of these cartoons were redistributed as Saturday morning shows for kids of the next generation. Margo Burns offers an introduction to the people and studios that made these films and the changing technology, aesthetics, music, politics, and economics behind them, showing stills, characters, and clips from many of these beautifully hand-drawn films. At the end of her program, participants are treated to one of the classics in its entirety.
