Poet Inspires Language & Composition Class

Mrs. Fagan’s AP Language and Composition Class was delighted to  listen to a reading by poet Joan Murray on Friday April 8, at the Johnstown Public Library. Murray has published five volumes of poetry, won the National Endowment for the Arts Poetry Fellowship and Pushcart Prizes, been the Writer in Residence at the state Writers’ Institute, and is a repeat guest on NPR’s Morning Edition. Following the reading, students wrote their own narrative poems.

Though it snowed and felt  more like February than April, the students truly enjoyed their walking field trip and are grateful for the great resources at the Johnstown Public Library.
