IN-STORE Children’s Poetry Reading with Curt Curtin

Sunday, November 14, 2021 at 2:00 pm
Event is limited to 25. Masks required.


Do your children ever ask odd questions like “why do rivers shiver?” or “do trees dance?”
Curt Curtin answers these and many more in his latest poetry collection called: Why Trees Sneeze and Other Mysteries.

Worcester Librarian, Devon Evans says of the collection:

… We learn what happens when trees sneeze, how to talk to vegetables, which cat is the rudest, and much more. Filled with wit, inventive rhyme schemes, and fun wordplay, this is a collection that curious minds are sure to enjoy.

Retired educator and fellow poet, John Gaumond says:

In Why Trees Sneeze and Other Mysteries, Curt Curtin uses word and letter play, metaphor and rhyme … Curtin delights and instructs us in this collection for young readers.

In addition publishing two full-length adult collections and three poetry chapbooks, Curtin taught English and Creative Writing at the junior high, high school and college levels for over 25 years, and volunteered to teach poetry classes in two elementary schools. He served as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for children in foster care and a Volunteer Case Reviewer for the Mass. Department of Children and Families for 20 years. Copies of his new book are being donated to local libraries, CASA, and DCF.
