Read about Poetry for NPM.

It’s April again, so it’s National Poetry Month. There are many ways to celebrate and if reading about poetry – and the poets who write them – is one of the things you’d like to do, here are some books at the library to help you get started:

1. How I Discovered Poetry by Marilyn Nelson

2. What Poets are Like: Up and Down with the Writing Life by Gary Soto

3. Open the Door: How to Excite Young People about Poetry edited by Dorothea Lasky, Dominic Luxford, and Jesse Nathan

Also, if you’d rather read fiction with characters that are poets:

1. The Summer Without Men by Siri Hustvedt

2. The Dreamer by Pam Muñoz Ryan

3. My Name is Phillis Wheatley : A Story of Slavery and Freedom by Afua Cooper
