Librarian Margaret Stawowy is reading a beginningchapter book for children ages 4-7. My Father’s Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett was published by Random House in 1948. It is now in the public domain. It was both a Newberry Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book.
Instituted by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996, National Poetry Month was established “to remind the public that poets have an integral role to play in our culture and that poetry matters.”
Usually, National Poetry Month is a time for poetry readings and celebratory activities around poetry and poetry writing. As we shelter in place, we’re bringing the celebration to you! We will be collecting video clips of poets, mostly local, who will read a poem for your reflection and enjoyment. Here is the link to the Poetry YouTube Playlist. Get inspired! See if you feel moved to write a poem of your own. Now, more than ever, we need poetry!
