Join the celebration of National Poem in Your Pocket Day on Thursday, April 29th by choosing a poem from the display hanging outside the library to share spontaneously with friends, family, classmates, and unsuspecting strangers on Thursday. The display features poems by contemporary poets of the southeastern United States, including Nikki Giovanni, Rita Dove, Greg Orr, Terrance Hayes, Linda Pastan, Tony Hoagland, and many other poets.
Want to give voice to a favorite poem of yours in an open mic session? Stop by the library during lunch on Thursday and read your favorite poem for the crowd. Participants will be entered in a drawing for a Starbuck’s gift card.
