Ms. Bourbeau will read a mix of poems and 100-word stories, many of which use the backdrop of nature’s cycles to look at events in the U.S. and the world, as well as the personal impacts of both. She will also introduce participants to the six-word memoir. Come ready to write your first six-word memoir and to share with the group!
