Book To Action Series: Tell Your Story Walking at Goldwyn Hollywood Regional Library

EPFC | January 20th, 2020
Members of Echo Park Film Center and film makers will screen and discuss the short film series, Tell Your Story Walking at Goldwyn Hollywood Regional Library – Los Angeles Public Library on Monday, January 27: 6 pm – 7:30 pm. Free event!
This program is part of a larger series of programs for Book to Action 2020-Hollywood Region. The series focuses on programs about walking, writing, and poetry.
A series of programs inspired by Harryette Mullen’s book, Urban Tumbleweed. Urban Tumbleweed is poet Harryette Mullen’s exploration of spaces where the city and the natural world collide. Written out of a daily practice of walking, Mullen’s stanzas adapt the traditional Japanese tanka, a poetic form suited for recording fleeting impressions, describing environmental transitions, and contemplating the human being’s place in the natural world.
Book to Action is a framework that takes the basic book club concept and expands it to create a dynamic series of events for adults and intergenerational groups. Librarians work closely with a community partner to develop a series of programs. Community members read and discuss an engaging book on a current topic, attend author or speaker events, and put their new-found knowledge into action by participating in a community service project or civic engagement activity related to the book.
