Explore New Worlds Series: CUBA
New Worlds Series – Cuba at Millinocket Memorial Library. Cuba, a nation frozen in time. Just 90 miles south of the United States, it is worlds away culturally, economically and politically.
In 2012, photographers Deb and Doug Schmidt traveled there with National Geographic, visiting UNESCO World Heritage sites Old Havana, Cienfuegos and Trinidad, Hemingway’s home, the tobacco plantations and sugar cane fields, and the Bay of Pigs — with locations and agendas strictly regulated by the Cuban government.
We hope you will join us to learn about the Cuban culture, and take a photo tour of this fascinating nation.
POETRY OUT LOUD
Poetry Out Loud will be held on Wednesday, April 25th at the Millinocket Memorial Library beginning at 7:00 pm.
This will be a time when poets, budding poets, and lovers of poetry as literature can come together to read either original works or the works of a favorite author. Books of poetry will be available to peruse and to choose a poem or two to read.
This will be for readers, writers and, listeners of all ages.
Depending on the number of readers willing to read a favorite poem or share an original will be allowed a few minutes to present the work and give all who want to read a poem or two the chance to do so.
This will be a non-juried where participants and attendees will respectfully listen and appreciate the works of poetry, both original and established works.
The event is free; however, donations to support the library will be welcomed.
There will be light refreshments available, such as cookies and apple cider.
April is Poetry month; this will be one event that can be promoted for the library and encouragement of this literary genre.
