"There is not a particle of life which does not bear poetry within it." -Flaubert
National Poetry Month is here; how are you celebrating? Attending a poetry reading? Signing up for a poetry class or workshop? Reading one poem a day? All of the above?
One of my favorite ways to celebrate National Poetry Month is to read at least one debut poetry collection. It's a great way to support new poets and be exposed to new poetic visions. Check out one of the debut collections below available at the Milwaukee Public Library.
To check availability click on the book cover, or click on the titles below.
- Adam Robison and Other Poems by Adam Robison
- Red Summer by Amaud Jamaul Johnson
- Factory of Tears by Valzhyna Mort
- Nick Demske by Nick Demske
Find even more ways to celebrate National Poetry Month with "30 Ways to Celebrate" from The Academy of American Poets.
