The Greenwood Lake Public Library, located at 79 Waterstone Rd. in Greenwood Lake, will present a Japanese Poetry Workshop on Sun., Apr. 15 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in honor of poetry month. Poet/authors James P. Wagner and Nick Hale will lead the workshop and share their knowledge on the history of Japanese poetry.
There will be particular focus on Renga, which is a collaborative Japanese poetry form historically used in the social class of the aristocrats who would correspond with each other through letters that could go through hundreds of verses. A Renga, in the strictest sense, requires three poets or more and is made up of alternating Tanka verse.
