Coronado Public Library Brings Back “Poetry for the People”


Interested in learning more about poetry in an accessible and interesting way? “Poetry for the People” returns to the Coronado Public Library on Wednesday, January 12 at 11 am in the Winn Room. The seven-part course invites members of the community to explore this literary form. Not just for those who love poetry, this course is for anyone who enjoys form or wants to understand it better.

In this year’s course, titled “Indigenous Poetry: As They See It,” instructor Charles Kamar will present the views, perceptions and issues through the poetry of at least fourteen Indigenous American men and women. Class participants are encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas about the poems. No previous experience or boring manual analysis here. Attend individual lessons or the entire series.

A retired English teacher, Kamar holds a BA from Boston State and an MA from Boston University. He taught at all levels of high school and spent the last 20 years of his career at Newton North High School. In 1998, he won the Paul E. Elicker Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Classes will take place on certain Wednesdays from January to March. Learn more and register for one-to-one lessons or the series on
