Annie talks with grade-school children and Missoula Writing Collaborative founder and poet Sheryl Noethe about feeling different and isolated. And the kids read poems they wrote about their feelings.
"The Pea Green Boat" provides a unique and nurturing place to hear stories about how it feels to be excluded, mocked, and bullied because you’re different, in color or ability – or how it feels to be accepted despite those differences. This week, Annie facilitates conversations with grade-school students and a teacher, Sheryl Noethe, about feeling different and isolated. Students write about their feelings and then read their poems.
April is National Poetry Month! Join host Sam Manno and Selya, a librarian from the Missoula Public Library, on Saturday, April 16, for a lively conversation as they attempt to answer the question, "What is a poem?" They'll explore the 'rhyme and reason' of different types of poems, while sharing some favorites.
