Hidden City: Poems of Urban Wildlife and Nature Poetry with the Author!

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Join us on the outskirts of the gardens, where the manicured landscape turns to meadow and woods for a poetry reading and activity with Author Sarah Grace Tuttle. Listen to the author read poems from her newest book, Hidden City: Poems of Urban Wildlife, and learn how she arranges and chooses words to create poetry jam-packed with action! Then, work as a family to find something in the woods to create an action poem about, and act out your poem for the group once completed.

This morning workshop is recommended for children 10 to 13 years of age.

Review our events page for two more workshops offered today, suitable for 2 to 5 and 6 to 9 year olds. 

Hidden City: Poems of Urban Wildlife by Sarah Grace Tuttle, illustrated by Amy Schimler-Safford. Eerdmans Books for Young Readers, 2018. $17.00  The perfect blend of science and poetry, Hidden City demonstrates that nature can thrive anywhere, even in highly populated areas. In this graceful collection of poems, skyscrapers serve as perches for falcons, streetlights attract an insect buffet for hungry bats, and an overgrown urban lot offers shelter to both flora and fauna. Hidden City also includes engaging supplementary materials, which provide scientific information about the animals and plants featured in the book. Coupled with beautiful collage illustrations, the poems in Hidden City offer readers the perfect reminder to notice and care about their environment. 

Books will be for sale throughout the day.

Sarah Grace Tuttle holds bachelor's degrees in Environmental Studies and English, as well as a master's degree in writing for children. Hidden City, her debut book, combines her passion for writing with her dedication to ecology. She lives in Massachusetts, where she helps facilitate a local conservation group.

Space is limited; Pre-registration is required.
