Focusing on the theme “The Eye”, participants will look at various literary representations. In between discussions, they’ll compose “poems that reveal, provocate, and see.” For details, see dedicated post.
  • Light Up Sledding (4:30 – 8:00 pm) @ Chestnut Hill Farm, Chestnut Hill Road: This is a weekly, potential-event through mid-March. Once again, the forecast makes it pretty unlikely for this week.
