Join Iowa City poet Lauren Haldeman for a blackout poetry workshop!

We’ll select words from a book or magazine page to form a new poem, then black out the rest of the unneeded text with a marker. Whether you’re used to writing poetry or have never tried it, please join us for some fun and maybe an unexpected masterpiece?

We’ll provide all the supplies, you provide the creativity.

Registration is optional, if you’d like to receive an email reminder the day of the event.

If you need disability-related accommodations in order to participate in this event, please contact the Library.

This event is open to the public.

The Digital Media Lab is available during this event.

Experience Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 in Iowa CityJune 10 - July 10th

The Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 red frames, each in the shape of a small house, set alongside one another will be placed in three main areas of the pedestrian mall. Inside each “casa”, there is a swing and a ring of lights lining the bottom. When the house is empty, the lights glow dimly to welcome the next visitor. Once someone steps inside, the lights release a more powerful glow, indicating that someone is home.
