Chil­dren s poet Lin Huanzhang vis­its Jiefang Park for shared book­shelf ac­tiv­ity

Changjiang Weekly - - CULTURE - By Ai Chen­guang

A group of artists from the Tai­wan re­gion, in­clud­ing fa­mous poets and pho­tog­ra­phers, vis­ited the "Wuhan Writ­ers' Shared Book­shelves" pro­gram in Jiefang Park on July18. Lin Huanzhang, a fa­mous Tai­wan poet for chil­dren, signed books for his young fans and pre­sented two copies of his work to the pro­gram.

The work Lin donated was his poem an­thol­ogy, "My Sis­ter's Red Rain Shoes." Lin said it was a good idea to set up a shared book­shelf which pro­vides a hap­py­place for chil­dren to read books. To make more peo­ple love read­ing and give them ac­cess to good books is the ultimate mean­ing of the shared book­shelf.

So far, the "Wuhan Writ­ers' Shared Book­shelves" pro­gram has re­ceived more than 700 books signed and donated by­over 130 Wuhan writ­ers.

Prior to Lin's visit to the pro­gram, he vis­ited the Yel­low Crane Tower on July14 and led 100 Wuhan pri­mary school stu­dents in read­ing po­ems to­gether. Lin en­cour­aged young read­ers to free their imag­i­na­tion and cre­ate their po­ems with an at­ti­tude of "play."
