Today kicks of National Poetry Month 2008!  What is National Poetry Month?  Here is how the Academy of American Poets defines it:

National Poetry Month was established by the Academy of American Poets as a month-long, national celebration of poetry. The concept was to increase the attention paid-by individuals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our poetic heritage, and to poetry books and magazines. In the end, we hoped to achieve an increase in the visibility, presence, and accessibility of poetry in our culture. National Poetry Month has been successful beyond all anticipation and has grown over the years into the largest literary celebration in the world.”

We also have a special collection of over 150 modern and classic poetry books you can check out!  Come by the library to find a wonderful book of poetry!
