April is National Poetry Month. Each April starting in 1996, poets, schools, libraries, literary organizations, booksellers, and publishers have worked together to spotlight poetry and celebrate both poetry and poets. Through publicity, special events, and resources that guide and inspire, the Academy of American Poets hope to increase the visibility and appreciation of poetry.
The Friends Bookstore will participate in National Poetry Month by spotlighting poetry during April. We have put together a special selection of poetry for both children and adults. If you enjoy poetry, I think you’ll like what you see. If poetry is not your favorite reading material, maybe it’s time to give it another try.
Don’t forget –The Friends Annual Brunch is Saturday, April 14. Local author Margean Gladysz will talk about her experiences she describes in her book "A Spy on the Bus." Click on the “Events" link on the right or call 553.7821 for more information.
