April is National Poetry Month
Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is now held every April, when publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools and poets around the country band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Thousands of businesses and non-profit organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events.
Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
“If it makes my whole body so cold no fire can warm me, I know it is poetry.”
Robert Louis Stevenson, Scottish writer, poet and essayist said “Wine is bottled poetry.”
Perhaps now is time to pair a bottle of the Library wine, with a loaf of bread, a poem, and your sweetheart!
