National Poetry Month
Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is now held every April, when schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets throughout the United States band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Thousands of organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events.
Come visit OCAC or any local library for books on POEMS!! Visit http://www.poets.org/index.php for ways to celebrate on your own.
