Celebrate National Poetry Month


In April of 1996, poets in the United States received the recognition that they deserve. On this day the Academy of American Poets named April as National Poetry Month. Readers from all over America use this month to pay homage to the creativity of this art form. SCBookGal and Friends have created a list of the reads that will capture your attention and introduce others to this great art form. (All book links are connected to Amazon.)
