Scholars meet poet Bruce Lansky

After weeks of reading poetry by Minneapolis writer Bruce Lansky, Ascension scholars and their families enjoyed an evening reading and talking about poetry with the author himself. He shared some of his favorite poems, some he has written and some by by others.   Audience members got to participate in acting out and reading poems to the group.   Lansky’s talk was part of Ascension’s Core Knowledge – Literature night. These programs offer scholars a chance to show what they have learned. The next Core Knowledge night is Jan. 28, 2016, and it will focus on science.  Here is a link to Lansky’s thoughts on the evening.
