Find an Event



Teachers often talk about the transformative power of the written word, but during a special annual event at the Mark Twain Library, they step outside of the classroom to demonstrate that power.

Teachers from all of Reddings schools will celebrate the art and magic of poetry by reciting their favorite poems, or even sharing their own work, during a special evening hosted by Jack Powers, a recently retired Joel Barlow High School English teacher. Jack has set pen to paper once again and published a second widely acclaimed new work of poetry, Still Love.
