Short Description: 
What's the Word - Poetry for Children

 

A special produced by the Modern Language Association program.  Part of the What's the Word? Celebrating National Poetry Month in April series |

The poetry we hear—and create—as children teaches us about the power of words.

From nursery rhymes and nonsense poems to serious verse about controversial subjects, poetry for children teaches us about the power of words. This program looks at how poets from the Victorian era to the contemporary playground explore the relation between words and meaning, test the limits of polite language, and use humor to upset the balance of power. 

 

 

Stage and Studio will be back April 28th with Olga Sanchez of Milagro Theatre.  Check out our latest shows online.
