Coffee + Writing 5/12 Roman mythology, Flora is a goddess of flowers and the season of spring – a symbol for nature and, particularly, the Mayflower. She, at least in part, is the inspiration for May Day, which is generally celebrated on the first of May to mark the beginning of summer. While the month of May is still a little early to be welcoming summer in Alaska, students and teachers will soon be taking their 3-month vacation from the classroom.

This month, we invite you to join us for Coffee + Writing at the Loussac Library (yes, they sell coffee) where we can explore our own personal mythologies, handed down through generations, or of the Greek or Roman variety, using what we may have learned in school or through movies, books or plays on our own time. As always though, we welcome theme interpretations of all kinds!
