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.
