Launch of Poetry Month with Helwa
Spend the Afternoon Between the Paws of the Sphinx
 with poets Penn Kemp, Jocelyn Drainie, Ruth Douthwright and Jennifer White
Helwa! a sound opera: experiencing ancient Egypt.
In the 1985 season, after two tourists had been killed by terrorists at the temple complex of Giza, tour leaders were invited back to Egypt on a familiarization tour. Penn Kemp was selected from the group to spend the night between the paws of the Sphinx. In her introduction to the chapbook, Penn writes, "Last spring’s Cairene revolution was so inspiring that I felt impelled to return again to that land of the heart, at least in poetry. Helwa! is dedicated in hope to the people of Egypt. The word means ‘Beautiful’ in Arabic.”  Open to everyone, Free in the Library Auditorium.

Our Weekend Hours are:
Friday: 10am - 6pm
Saturday: 10am - 5pm
Sunday: 2pm - 5pm
