Programs, Events, Services and Recommendations
Are you a would-be poet? Do you have scraps of poetry tucked away in a drawer or notebook or on your phone? Would you like help from an experienced poet? Kingston's Poet Laureate, Helen Humphreys, will be available for 30-minute one-on-one appointments to review and critique poetry next Wednesday, August 12, from 12 to 3pm and 5 to 7:30pm. Make sure to book your session soon.
Interested in a fun and different way of learning about the past? Come hear Jon McLean from the Kingdom of Ealdormere tell how members of the international living history organization the Society for Creative Anachronism research and re-create the arts and skills of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Learn from an expert how our ancestors lived and worked — on the battlefield, at court, in the forge, in the kitchen or in an artisan's workshop.
Free event. All are welcome.
