Ordinary Moonlight, Uncanny Fire: A Poetry Workshop

April 24 at 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Join Elizabeth Quiñones-Zaldaña for a poetry workshop that will explore the potential behind everyday habits and commonplace occurrences that may appear as mundane yet, upon closer inspection, are sometimes a quiet opportunity for wonder or a glimpse at the ineffable. Participants will read poems, discuss what they find, and spend time writing. Elizabeth Quiñones-Zaldaña is a southern Nevada writer and educator. She leads poetry and art workshops, and her poems have been published in “Sagebrush to Sandstone: A Humanities Guide to Outdoor Nevada,” Nevada Public Radio’s Desert Companion, 300 Days of Sun, and her work is forthcoming in “The Book of Life After Death: Essays & Poems.” Her poetry collection, “Bougainvillea,” is available through Tolsun Books.

This free program is part of Henderson Libraries’ Poetry Palooza series celebrating National Poetry Month. Space is limited and registration is recommended.
