The May edition of the “Writers Read” program at Eau Claire’s L. E. Phillips Memorial Public Library will offer a variety of perspectives on “What Work Is.”
The program is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 11 in the Eau Claire Room on the Library’s lower level. The monthly presentations are organized by Max Garland, Eau Claire’s writer-in-residence and Wisconsin’s poet laureate in 2013-14.
Writers ranging from Robert Frost to Dolly Parton have written about the subject of work, and the program next Thursday will offer participants an opportunity to weigh in on the topic, the Library said in a news release.
Anyone wishing to take part in the program should bring up to five minutes of original poetry or prose on the theme of work, and be prepared to read it. Alternatively, participants can bring a favorite poem on that subject and share it. Sign-up for participants will begin at 5:45 p.m.
“Industrious listeners are also welcome,” according to the press release.
