YOU ARE INVITED! Lesley Strutt will host a Poem in Your Pocket Day event at the Merrickville Library, on Thursday April 27th at 7:00 pm. Bring a favourite poem to read, listen to poetry being read, and take a poem or two away with you.
April is National Poetry Month in Canada. For an entire month, poets across the country celebrate poetry by sharing poems with each other and with anyone who enjoys poetry. The month-long celebration peaks with Poem in Your Pocket Day, on the last Thursday of the month when people around the country are encouraged to channel their inner poet. Schools, bookstores, libraries, parks, and street corners sing with the magic of poems new and old being shared.
There is not a particle of life which does not bear poetry within it. ~Gustave Flaubert
