Department of Book Reports: Poetry!

It's time for Poetry Month again! As they have in the past, Knopf publishing will send you a poem a day when you sign up for their email list. Check out the other topics in the right hand side bar while you're there.

I also like to mention a couple of my favorite booksellers, John & Christine, over at Open Books A Poetry Emporium. If you have a chance, spend a couple hours browsing their shelves in Seattle. It's delightful to be surrounded by so much poetry!

Another wonderful resource is The National Poetry Foundation, with links to fill up many a rainy afternoon. I'll leave you with this final bit of whimsy, a gown made entirely of Little Golden Books (via boingboing)

Poetry books are available at (Jackson Street) Books On 7th and fine independent bookstores everywhere. Visit us on Facebook Jackson Street Books.
