Book Page, or Blackout, Poetry is a treasure hunt to find new, hidden
meanings on the printed page. The basic concept is to take a page from a book or newspaper and  by selecting certain words on that page, create a poem. Then color, mark out, or draw over the rest of the page to highlight the words chosen.

All supplies will be provided or bring your own, such as: a random page out of a book, coloring supplies, markers.

Both teens and adults are welcome to this free event celebrating National Poetry Month.

Leading this event is Bibi Summer, a publication designer in Northern California for over 30 years. She has a B.A. in Journalism from U.W.-Madison, and while at Pratt University, N.Y. worked toward a Masters in Graphic Design. She has been the art director of the Mill Valley Record, Acoustic Guitar, Strings, and Wines & Vines magazines, among others, and has designed or illustrated books, CDs and websites. She also teaches bookbinding at Createful Studio in San Rafael.
