National Poetry Month 2016

by Joseph M

April is National Poetry Month, and if you are looking for ways to celebrate and explore the medium, DCPL has a lot to offer.

We have works available by a multitude of poets, from Edgar Allan Poe to Langston Hughes, Phillis Wheatley to Kahlil Gibran, and Emily Dickinson to Natasha Trethewey, just to name a few.

You can also check out poetry events, like Poetry Atlanta Presents, a Georgia Center for the Book event at the Decatur Library on April 26. Click here for more details.

I also recently discovered a nifty website called the Favorite Poem Project, which features people all over the country reading aloud and speaking about poems they love. Check it out, and maybe you’ll discover a new favorite.

How will you celebrate National Poetry Month?
