“There is two things everybody got to find out for theirselves. They got to find out about love and they got to find out about living.” ― Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

We will write about love and write about living and everything in between in this summer writing workshop.

This workshop meets in three separate sessions, July 1, July 22, and August 12.

Free for Library members; $15 for the set of three sessions for nonmembers. Register once to attend any or all sessions.

Esther Cohen is a writer and poet in New York City. She also teaches and is a cultural activist. Most days she posts a poem at esthercohen.com.
