June, Bham: Teen Poetry Workshop

Homewood Library Will Host Teen Poetry Workshop Starting May 24
Starting Saturday, May 24, the free teen poetry workshop that is usually held at the downtown Birmingham Public Library, will be held at the Homewood Public Library until the Birmingham location's air conditioning unit can be fixed. The East Building of the Birmingham location reduced its hours to close at 12:00 noon. The move was necessary because of rising temperatures and a broken unit. As a result, the teen poetry workshop had to be moved. Homewood graciously agreed to host the event until repairs can be made.

The teen workshop will be held every Saturday from 2-4 p.m. It is free and open to all middle school and high school age teens. The Homewood Public Library is located at 1721 Oxmoor Road in Homewood. Real Life Poets, a non-profit creative writing organization, partners with the Birmingham Public Library to offer the workshop.Occasionally the workshop may be cancelled due to conflicts with other events. Contact John Paul Taylor of RLP to confirm the workshop is being held; the e-mail is johnpaul@reallifepoets.org and telephone is 205-585-8271.

The teen poetry workshop will return to the Birmingham location after repairs are made. Parts have been ordered for the air conditioner, and repairs will be scheduled once parts arrive.

This workshop is funded by a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Please share with those who may have an interest.

End of the Year Party
Turkey Creek Nature Preserve
Noon - ???

Sponsored by Everest Academy but open to all homeschoolers!  Don't forget the teens!  

We will meet at the main swimming area called "the falls", located at the first large parking area you come to on the one-way entrance road. 

This is an awesome place to swim, hike, and picnic. Make sure to bring a float for the "natural slide". Also, the rocks in the swimming area are super slick, and it is recommended for everyone (especially kids) to wear old socks. The socks grip better than anything else we've found, even shoes specific for swimming/hiking in streams. There is a very shallow area for the littles to play in. 

Don't forget sunblock! The area has some shade, but the swimming area is very sunny. 

There is a small, flat open space at the swimming area for playing games as well as hiking trails for those who do not wish to swim. 

Turkey Creek is a great place for families, and we look forward to seeing you there!

*TCNP is located at: 3906 Turkey Creek Rd, Pinson, AL 35126

Things to Bring:
Lots of friends
Socks for slippery rocks (does much better than river shoes)
Floats for "natural slide"
Chairs or blankets
Drinking water and picnic
Freecycle items
Anything else you will need to have an awesome time!!!!

FREECYCLE:  Feel welcome to bring any Freecycle items including curriculum, teaching supplies, books, art supplies, etc. that you would like to gift to another family.  When you get ready to leave, please take any leftover items back home with you rather than leave it for someone else to have to clean up.
