It's National Poetry Month again!
National Poetry month, first established in 1996, is a month-long, national celebration of poetry established by the Academy of American Poets. The concept is to widen the attention of individuals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our complex poetic heritage, and to poetry books and journals of wide aesthetic range and concern.
Read Jessica's post about last year's National Poetry Month, or visit the Poets.org site for information during this year's National Poetry Month, including their calendar of events. Additionally, find out about the Connecticut Poetry Society (which meets here at Hamden Library!) or check out some chapbooks or books about poetry from Miller or our branches.
This year's Poem in Your Pocket Day is April 14, 2011.
