Video Poetry Podcast Workshop

     On Saturday, August 5th, Victor Farmington Library held a "Video Poetry Podcast Workshop." Our young patrons chose, performed, and illustrated their favorite Shel Silverstein poems. We combined their audio performances and artwork, with music & photos, to create a video that is the second in our series of library "Poetry Podcasts." Please enjoy these funny, and often poignant, poems from the wonderful Shel Silverstein.
