Poetry Workshop: Forms & Features: Pastoral

May 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Awaken your gardening skills - Lurie Garden Free Spring Programming

All are welcome to a poetry discussion and creative writing workshop led by Maggie Queeney, Poetry Foundation Library Coordinator.

To celebrate spring in Lurie Garden, we read and discuss the pastoral, a type of nature poetry that traditionally praises an idealized rural life. After spending time in the garden, participants will compose original poems that explore nostalgia and desire within the bucolic landscape. Space is limited. RSVP required.


Your support is meaningful to the Lurie Garden’s continued efforts in providing free nature programs to the public.

With your contribution, you help us to continue these free programs.
