Shawn Bayrd reading one of the 12 Nooks available in the BHS Library
Nooks are checked out for 3 weeks, just like a book. Just stop by the library to pick up a permission form to have signed at home. Permission forms may also be printed from the link above. Also, let us know which books YOU would like to read on the Nook!
These whimsical marine motif figures were crafted by local artist, historian, author and musician Claude Bonang, who graduated from Brunswick High School in 1948 and from Bowdoin College in 1952. Check out Brunswick’s history in his book Memories in Verse and Prose on display!
On April 5, 2013, I spent a wonderful afternoon recording Claude Bonang (Brunswick High School, Class of 1948) playing his old-time instruments (the washboard tie, musical saw, rhythm bones, harmonica and mouth harp), as well as reading from his book Memories in Prose and Verse. Claude Bonang taught Biology and AP Biology at BHS, and is an historian, author, musician and artist. Check out his marine motif folk art display in the Library! ~Mrs. Jerome
Create your own “Cento” Book Spine Poem and we’ll snap a picture of it and post it on the bulletin board in the library. Your cento may also get read at Poetry Open Mic Night on April 26th in Crooker Theater. April is National Poetry Month!
What is cento? A cento is a poem pieced together from the words of several authors. Book Spine Poems are created by stacking books, then reading the tiles as though each were a line of verse. This poetic form is known as a cento. So, if you like poetry, words, or just like stacking things, try making a cento out of books in the BHS library…it’s addicting!
