Spring for Poetry Video

Click on the URL above for an inside look at the creation of the poetry walk beginning with the selection of poems and through the design process by students at Montgomery College. This is part of Takoma Park Snapshots that the city's Video Production unit produces under Alvaro Calabia. To watch the Spring for Poetry segment, go to minute 12:30, where it begins.

See the poem "Why I am Not a Painter" brought to life - real Takoma Park.

Also see a one-minute clip made at the Farmers' Market of Johanna Leffler (13) reading a surrealist poem by Max Jacob in English and the original French.

The "Takoma Voice" article by Max Bennett on the Friends Great Big Book Group includes photos of participants from previous discussion series.
