Diwali is coming up on October 27th, so let’s celebrate a little early with Manisha Trivedi from Henna Cafe! She’ll be going over the history, culture, and science of henna tattooing, along with the fundamentals of Indian, African, and Moroccan designs, with plenty of time for participants to practice and draw on their own mehndi!

This drop-in class welcomes serious poets of all ages and levels of experience who would like to participate for one or more sessions. We begin with a discussion of a topic in poetry leading to a brief in-class assignment. Poets who wish to have their work discussed should bring copies.

Alan’s collection, Immortality, was awarded the Massachusetts Book Award for Poetry in 2016.
