April marks National Poetry Month

LAKE COUNTY – April is National Poetry Month and the Lake County Library is celebrating with a display of books of and about poetry for all ages.


National Poetry Month was established by the Academy of American Poets as a month-long celebration of poetry with the goal of raising awareness about poetry.


Since 1996 the celebration of National Poetry Month has grown into one of the largest literary celebrations in the world.


To celebrate National Poetry Month consider listening to live Webcasts of poetry on the Web, joining a Poetry Book club, or attending local poetry events here in Lake County.


Heading down to the Lakeport Library and checking out the poetry materials they have on display is also a simple way to celebrate poetry.
