Calling all incurable romantics: Do you love to read love poems—or write them yourself?

On the first and third Wednesdays of June, July, and August instructor Frank Dixon Graham will lead classes on some of the famed poets of longing and heartbreak. Participants will read the greatest love poetry of all time, and write their own.

These classes are the third in a series taught by Graham, a published poet and editor of the Sacramento Poetry Center’s Tule Review. He’ll offer a brief lecture at the beginning of each class. Students can write their own love poems in the styles discussed. Positive feedback is encouraged.

Come to one session or attend all six. Classes are FREE and sponsored by the McKinley Library. For more information, contact: Frank.Graham@Goddard.edu.

All sessions are from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the McKinley Library, 601 Alhambra Boulevard.
