Today, at Cedar Brook Park.

Continuing to expand its offerings to Plainfield young people, the Recreation Division is offering free poetry workshops and an open mic program this afternoon at Cedar Brook Park from 3:00 to 7:00 PM.

From 3:00 to 4:00 PM, Team Pyramid's Sean Battle, Kweem Moore and Dr. Queen Assata will lead workshops on writing, performance and art. Plainfield teens and young adults will be encouraged to express creativity and originality. Materials for the workshops will be supplied by Recreation.
