Collection of Poems Reception

Description: The Chinati Foundation and Marfa ISD, with support from Ballroom Marfa and Friends of the Marfa Public Library, will host a public program and reception in honor of the release of a new collection of poems written by Marfa Jr/Sr High students. The books were compiled, designed and crafted by students involved in the school's Gifted and Talented program during a workshop with Chinati intern, Emma Perry. The event takes place Tuesday, May 4 at 6 PM at Marfa Book Company, with student readings followed by refreshments. Editions of the hand-bound volumes, each with unique covers and student introductions, will be available, with all proceeds benefitting the MJSHS Student Fund.

Everyone is invited to celebrate the release of the book and meet the many talented students involved in the project. Perry and the students involved in the workshop will appear on Marfa Public Radio's Talk at Ten on Tuesday, May 4 at 10 AM.
