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