Judson Scruton leads this 3-part series with a new look at the poems of Marianne Moore as they were originally published. Working from the 2017 New Collected Poems: Marianne Moore, editor Heather Cass White presents the poems as they were first published and provides appendixes to indicate changes that Moore made in later additions. This edition allows attendees to see the Modernist Poet who blasted through classical conventional poetry. Judson Scruton, M.A (The Johns Hopkins University, The Writing Seminars, specializing in poetry), has taught creative writing and literature at prep schools and universities. He is currently an Adjunct Professor of English at Fairfield University. Poetry packets available at front desk one week before the seminar begins. No charge for the program. Advance registration required. Register online or call 203-762-6334.

Come to Wilton Library and make your own Piñata for Cinco de Mayo! In this two-part workshop, children will create their piñata out of papier mache (4/26), leave it at the library to dry, and come back the following week (5/3) to decorate. They can then take their creations home to stuff with candy for Cinco de Mayo on May 5th! Children will be signed up for both classes when they register. Bring a T-shirt or wear old clothes as papier mache can be very messy! Registration required, for Grades 3 to 5. Children will be registered for both classes. Register online or call 203-762-6336.
