Since 1996 April has been designated as National Poetry Month in the U.S. Books now on display in the Erwin Library Reference Area are ready for you to check out and immerse yourself in poetry from all time periods and cultures. From beautifully illustrated Children’s tales in verse, to ancient poems (in translation of course!) that tell of adventures and heroes.
If you need more poetry, sign up for a poem-a-day to be sent to your email by the Academy of American Poets. You’ll find a new poem in your inbox each day, a contemporary, unpublished poem or a classical, historical one. No one should live without poetry!
