Resin Poetry with Kirsten Hopfensperger

Celebrate National Poetry Month! On April 17th, we will be making resin poetry paperweights with award-winning poet Kirsten Hopfensperger.
This program requires registration and is only open to adults. Patrons should come ready to get messy. Resin is a chemical, so masks are also recommended but not required.
Call the library at 920-788-7515 to register.
Kirsten Hopfensperger is a wife, mother, artist, and ironically, self-declared “open book”. As a person who has had a passion for writing since she was a child, Kirsten has followed in her family’s long lineage of writing poetry. She is the author and illustrator of the poetry collection rearranged and the children’s book I Love You From Heaven. After going through loss of her own, she was inspired to reflect, grieve, and heal; and she has allowed this raw vulnerability to fill her illustrations and writings. In creating books that address difficult topics, she lessens the isolation that fills many readers, and opens their hearts to hope. When not drawing or writing, Kirsten can be found with a grateful heart, enjoying nature and spending time with her family and loved ones. She lives in the Midwest with her husband and two children, and finds retreat in family cabins, coffee, walks, and snuggling up to a great book with her kids.
