Thanks to Dr. Lynne Viti for contributing this news to Westwood Minute.

On April 28, 2022, students at Westwood's Martha Jones School were treated to a poetry writing workshop by Dr. Jenn Bogard. Dr. Bogard is currently lecturer at Lesley University and previously was an elementary school teacher. She is also author of books that includes children's titles such as The ABCs of Plum Island, Massachusetts, B is for Beach Plums, and C is for Clipper. 

Dr. Bogard's visit, along with a visit the same day by poet and performer Mr. Regie Gibson to Westwood High School, marked April as National Poetry Month. Both events were funded by a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and Westwood Cultural Council, obtained by Westwood poet and resident Dr. Lynne Viti.

Dr. Bogard presented two mini workshops to second and third grade students during the morning and afternoon, and she also answered questions during the lunch break. Below are photos from her visit with Martha Jones School students., courtesy of Dr. Viti.
