Poetry podcasts showcase work from middle school students

Posted: Thursday, September 17, 2009

The Juneau-Douglas City Museum has set up a new series of poetry podcasts at the museum and on the museum's Web site, www.juneau.org/parkrec/museum. The podcasts feature poetry written by students from Floyd Dryden Middle School, with help from their instructor Liz Gifford, on Alaska's quest for statehood and civil rights in Alaska. A factual narration links the poems together.

Visitors to the museum can check out MP3 players at the front desk along with a printed script.

Summer hours are still in effect at the museum through Sept. 27, and are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.

For more information, contact the museum at 586-3572 or online at www.juneau.org/parkrec/museum.
