ASHLAND – The Ashland Public Library will welcome Alondra Bobadilla, the first Boston Youth Poet Laureate, for a hybrid event on Saturday, April 30.
The event is a joint venture with the Framingham Public Library.
It is a hybrid event on April 30 from 3 to 4 p.m. In-person at the Ashland Library and via Zoom.
In January 2020, Alondra Bobadilla was named Boston’s first-ever Youth Poet Laureate. Born and raised in Boston, MA, Alondra found and nurtured her love for writing since she learned her first letters. Alondra uses her writing to highlight social issues that impact her and her community. Through her own work, she demonstrates how creative expression can be a powerful tool for youth to examine feelings around issues, find their voice, and speak up about the changes they want to see for their future.
Alondra Bobadilla is the author of a poetry book entitled “With Clipped Wings” which was published June of 2021. Alondra’s book will be available for purchase and signing if you can join in-person.
No registration need for in-person.
