WESTFIELD, NJ - On Wednesdays December 9 and 16 at 7:00 pm, the Westfield Memorial Library will present two creativity workshops entitled “Balancing Act” and “Find Your Inner Happy.” The library is located at 550 East Broad Street, Westfield.

The presenter is Westfield resident and poet Wendy Rosenberg. In the Balancing Act workshop, participants will use art and writing activities to define what the concept of “balance” is in their own lives.

They will also use art and writing to delve into their own sense of inner happiness in the Inner Happy workshop. As Wendy has said, participants do not need to have a writing or artistic background; just a desire to do some exploration and have some fun.
