Event Details

Included with Garden admission; free for members

In the depths of winter, the skeleton of a tree appeared in the Robins Library: it’s a Poet-Tree! We invite you to compose original poems on paper leaves and attach them to the Poet-Tree. With your help, it will grow and flourish as winter gives way to spring. Join us along the way for poetry workshops, open mic events, readings, and more!
