Join us for “Poe Inspired”

Literacy Connects, the UA Poetry Center and Tucson Festival of Books present “Poe Inspired.”

Youth throughout Tucson were invited to write Poe-inspired stories and poetry for the Tucson Festival of Books Young Authors’ Competition. Some submissions were then selected for performance by Stories that Soar!, or publication by Literacy Connects.

Join us at the UA Poetry Center Family Day on Saturday, March 5th, to celebrate these stories through performance as well as a book presentation and readings.

UA Poetry Center Family Day, Saturday, March 5th:

Free breakfast and workshops, 10:00am-11:00am
Stories that Soar! live performance, 11:00am-12:00pm

Literacy Connects’ professional adult theatre ensemble, Stories that Soar!, will transform a selection of Poe-inspired stories and poems into a dynamic live theatre show.

A selection of stories submitted to Tucson Festival of Books were illustrated by art students at City High. Join us for readings from these books, as well as a special book presentation to recognize the authors and illustrators.
