November 19, 2017 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am
Congregation Beth Emeth
Lecture will be in the Social Hall.
Shel Silverstein is remembered mostly for his poetry for children, but he produced volumes of material —plays, cartoons and music — for more mature audiences, as well. In this presentation, participants will gain a new appreciation of his children’s poetry and enjoy selected adult writings through active reading and group activities. The presenter, a veteran stage director and performer, will lead discussion of the elements of poetry and drama and of Shel Silverstein’s life and work. Participants will be invited to improvise, interpret and read his works aloud.
