Haiku workshop this Saturday

I am signed up for our haiku workshop this Saturday, February 28th. Suzy Conway, one of our awesome Philomath librarians, will lead us, and does she know haikus. She wrote a book of them called Lights Along the Road, which she co-authored with Janak Sapkota.

Now you may be thinking, haiku, haiku, what are those, some sort of short poems? You’re right, haikus are those three line Japanese poems, with 5, 7, and 5 syllables.

Anyway, we still have a few openings left in this free workshop, that will be held from 2 to 3:30 in the Main Meeting Room here at the Corvallis Library. To sign up, call the second floor librarians at 766-6793 or sign up in person. Hope to see you there.
