Saturday morning at 11am, Bobbi Katz will read from her book “The Monsterologist: A Memoir in Rhyme,” about a scientist whose specialty is monsters. Then she will guide young participants in creating their own ghoulish poetry. Its a great way to spend a Saturday morning with a little bit of learning and a lot of fun. River Terrace, at Murray Street, Battery Park City, Lower Manhattan , (212) 431-7920, poetshouse.org; free. You can find more activities in Manhattan here.
