     Recently, renowned concrete poet and children’s book author John Grandits visited Horizons on the Hudson in Newburgh. Grandits, the special guest at Poetry Out Loud, hosted a poetry workshop where students created concrete poems.

     Students who wrote an original concrete poem qualified to receive a complimentary copy of one of his books. In total, 35 complimentary books were awarded following the event. His visit and some of the complimentary copies of his books were made possible by a Lend Lease Foundations Grant received by employee Charmaine Moshier of their New York office on behalf of Horizons.
