Catherine Willard of Jamestown looks at a blackout poetry box, the project for Thrifty Crafters from 6 to 8 p.m. on April 10 at Prendergast Library. Adults attending are asked to bring a black or dark-colored marker. By choosing words and phrases that appeal to them on a printed page and blacking out unwanted words, they will create a unique poem using the unmarked words left behind. Registration is not required. For information about this free activity, call 484-7135 or stop in at 509 Cherry St., Jamestown. The event is part of The Big Read focusing on the poetry of Emily Dickinson.
