National Poetry Month

National Poetry Month Logo

April is National Poetry Month. This month long celebration is intended to celebrate the profound influence that poets have had on our culture and society and to encourage the reading and celebration of poems.

There are plenty of books on poetry and poets in the Luria Library catalog. You can also learn more about specific poets and poems at the website. For the rest of this month and for as long as you want, why not sign up for a poem a day newsletter?

Here are a sampling of ebooks on poetry to get you started. If you are an SBCC student enter your pipeline login information to connect online.
