What do exploring farmers’ markets and writing poems have in common? They are both treasure hunts! Through her award-winning poetry collection, Fresh-Picked Poetry: A Day at the Farmers' Market, Michelle will take readers on a journey to discover rare and unexpected produce from the farmers' market and delicious words for poems. Michelle will share different poetry forms and provide a template to get kids started on writing their own poems. Michelle will also provide a fun farmers' market craft to accompany the poems.
