Free Poetry Writing Class for Kids: Our Heroes, Ourselves @ Queens Library at Jackson Heights | New York | United States

“Epic Poems: Our Heroes, Ourselves”

We are all heroes in our own stories, and this connects us to the long history of humans trying to make sense of the world through narrative. We will read a few examples of poems that tell a story, and study images of myths and folktales, unearthing the stuff of legend in our own lives. It will, of course, be epic.

Pichchenda Bao is an emerging writer and poet in Queens, NY. She was born in Cambodia at the end of the Khmer Rouge regime and came with her parents to the United States as refugees in the 1980s.

This program is made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, as well as with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
