BRIO award winner Sarah Stern kicks off the Big Read with a poetry workshop, providing writing exercises to inspire and motivate. Sarah Stern will read from her work and provide prompts for participants to write their own poems. 

The workshop draws from themes in her own work - the natural world, finding the mystical in the ordinary, loss, desire, and resistance as also relates to themes in Ursula LeGuin's majestic story-telling triumph, A Wizard of Earthsea.

Sarah Stern is the author of But Today is Different and Another Word for Love. She is a five-time winner of the Bronx Council on the Art's BRIO Award.
