Go Ahead, Read Some Poetry!
April is National Poetry Month, so it is a great time to read a little bit of poetry and share your favorite poems with others. We have a small section of poetry, but it features some of our favorites. Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter in April for all of our poetry related comments.
World Book Night
April 23 is World Book Night. Anne, Patty and I will all be giving out books this year.
Here is an overview of the event from their website:
Each year, 30- 35 books are chosen by an independent panel of librarians and booksellers. The authors of the books waive their royalties and the publishers agree to pay the costs of producing the specially-printed World Book Night U.S. editions. Bookstores and libraries sign up to be community host locations for the volunteer book givers. After the book titles are announced, members of the public apply to personally hand out 20 copies of a particular title in their community. World Book Night U.S. vets the applications, and the givers are chosen based on their ability to reach light and non-readers. The selected givers choose a local participating bookstore or library from which to pick up the 20 copies of their book, and World Book Night U.S. delivers the books to these host locations. Givers pick up their books in the week before World Book Night. On April 23rd, they give their books to those who don’t regularly read and/or people who don’t normally have access to printed books, for reasons of means or geography.
If you would like to give out books, but didn't signup to be a book giver, email me at email@example.com as we might have some extra books.
