South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch

Writer’s Center Conference Room (65)

A playful approach to open poetic doors. #readwritepoetry

**PARKING also available at Notre Dame College, directly across from the library. Uniformed personnel will be available during library hours to help pedestrians cross South Green Road.**

National Poetry Month takes place in April and so does April Fool’s Day. These two things are not unrelated. Join poet Patrick Culliton for discussion and the creation of poems with a focus on “fooling around” and how this playful approach can open poetic doors. Try your hand at erasure and surrealist poetry, along with surprising group creations.

Patrick Culliton, author of Sam’s Teeth (Subito Press), received his MFA from University of North Carolina Wilmington. After over a decade of teaching writing at the college level, he now works in the Marketing Department for Geauga County Public Library.

About the branch

The City of South Euclid will conduct a resurfacing project on South Green Road between Mayfield Road and Cedar Road that we anticipate will result in travel delays. The resurfacing project is expected to begin Monday, April 3, 2023, and continue through late fall. During that time, we encourage all visitors to the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch of Cuyahoga County Public Library to plan accordingly and allow themselves ample travel time. The South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch will remain open for normal hours of operation during construction.  

Click here for more information about the Green Road resurfacing project from the Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works.
