National Poetry Month

Get out your papers, pens, laptops and rhyming dictionaries (if you're a traditionalist) -- April is National Poetry Month. This annual event is celebrated by bookstores, libraries and other organizations throughout the country to recognize the important contributions that poetry and its practitioners make to our culture. You can sign up to have a Poem A Day delivered to your e-mail inbox free of charge. And The Read on WNC has a lot of good information up about poets here in Western North Carolina, including links to their websites.

We have some great events planned for the month at Accent on Books, the first one scheduled for April 10. Page 854 will have more information as it becomes available, or you can check our website anytime.

"Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village -- blow? show? throw?
