The Words You Hear, The Songs You Sing: Lyrics as Literature @ Van Meter Public Library
Jun 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

When we listen to music, there are usually two parts: the tune and the lyrics. The tune can elevate our hearts and souls, but so can the lyrics if we take the time to listen. Whether the songs are from Frank Sinatra or Sammy Hagar, the words we hear can tell a story that can be just as meaningful as the songs we sing.
