Paintings Pair with Poetry In Ocean County Library Virtual Programs

(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- During April, the Ocean County Library marks National Poetry Month with virtual programs that encourage self-expression in verse through art. “Poems Inspired by Paintings” consists of three virtual “stanzas” that will connect aspiring poets to renowned wordsmiths. 

“How to Use a Painting to Inspire Your Poetry” on Monday, April 5 at 7:00pm. In a live Zoom event, Jeanne Sutton, Laura Maschal, Alise Versella, and Sue Cummings read their poems and explain their interpretations of paintings by MaryBeth McCabe, Joyce Ecochard, Chuck Person, and Lois Mullens. Registrants at www.theoceancountylibrary.org/events will receive links to the event by email. 

“Write Your Own Poem Inspired by a Painting,” which invites individuals to submit poems and images of the art that sparked their imaginations. Material will be accepted at SAIL_TU@theoceancountylibrary.org through Thursday, April 22.

“Ocean County Poets Read” on Monday, April 26 at 7:00pm. In a live Zoom event, newly-inspired poets will read the works they submitted to the Library. Poets will be contacted for arrangements. Registrants at www.theoceancountylibrary.org/events will receive links by email.
