Do you love poetry?

Maybe you’ve never been into poetry, but wish you could be. Now’s a good time – April is National Poetry Month, and you can celebrate with the library. Enjoy a live poetry reading on April 25, at 6:00 p.m.  on our Facebook page with L. Luis Lopez and others. Naturally, we also have some mighty fine books to get you started. How to Read a Poem: and fall in love with poetry, by Edward Hirsch, is an eclectic assortment of poems from many times and places, written to help readers understand and appreciate poetry. The well-regarded poetry anthology, Good Poems for Hard Times, is an excellent way to sample a wide range of verse. For more ideas, Book Riot has a great post about 10 Poets For People Who think They Don’t Like Poetry.

Happy reading!
