Poetry has a long history as early poems evolved from folk songs to the epics, The Iliad and The Odyssey and beyond. Whereas, modern poetry is often less structured and is used to inspire, heal and often portrays the poet’s feelings and state of mind. If you are interested in poetry or have written your own poems, the November Lunch for the Mind program will satisfy the poet in you. Granby’s own Laura Mazza-Dixon, poet, musician and teacher, will present Poetry, a Reflection of Life on Wednesday, Nov. 15, at 12:30 at the Granby Senior Center. Join the Civic Engagement Education Team and Mazza-Dixon “for a workshop on how our lives have been influenced by poetry, and how we can share poetry with others, whether we ourselves have written poetry or not.” Mazza-Dixon says “I will read from my own work and share my experiences with writing poetry.” Participants are invited to bring their favorite poems and/or poems they have written themselves to share with the group.
