By learning new artistic skills, you will have the chance to express yourself in fun, creative ways! After School Art does not require registration and is free with paid admission to the museum.

2. Author Talk - Cheryl Savageau at the Ames Free Library

n this new collection of poetry, Savageau re-maps New England as Native American space, using indigenous female experiences to re-imagine creation stories, revealing a landscape of trees, ponds, rivers, and mountains rich in meaning for Abenaki people. Weaving traditional, personal, and family stories with stories of colonization and resistance she creates poems that tell stories of the dissonance of being “an exile in one’s own land,” and the complexities of survival and love.

Abenaki poet Cheryl Savageau has been awarded Fellowships in Poetry from the NEA and the MA Artists Foundation. Her children’s book, Muskrat Will Be Swimming, won the Smithsonian Notable Book for Children Award as well as the Skipping Stone award for exceptional Multicultural & Environmental children's books.

Free and open to all.
