Annual Poetry Bash: Read, Recite, Listen

April 24, 2016 @ 2:00 PM

The former US Poet Laureate Billy Collins once wrote: “All babies are born with a knowledge of poetry, because the lub-dub of the mother’s heart is in iambic meter.” Won’t you join Graves Library for National Poetry Month in April and get back in touch with your inner poet?! Bring a poem to read that you have written, share a favorite poem by another author, or just hunker down and listen. Inaugurated in April 1996, National Poetry Month brings together publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools, and poets around the country to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Be part of the celebration!
