Art is Poetry. Poetry is Art.

Thursday, April 25, 2019 at 7 PM – 8 PM

"The Rochester Public Library proudly presents Rochester artist and poet, Caroline Tavelli-Abar in celebration of Poetry Month. [...] She frequently shares her whimsical collages at the post office, and has also been the featured artist at Vermont Arts Council gallery and cover artist for their Arts Walk brochure. Hope, nature, seasons, wellness and joy are some of the themes in Caroline Tavelli-Abar’s poetry. She writes in times of mending about her experience with bipolar disorder and she also fondly explores the beauty of the natural world that surrounds her. Come celebrate Poetry Month at the library as Caro reads her poetry and displays her art on the big screen."
