Get your fill of local poetry with special YouTube videos featuring local poets reading their work.
The project has been spearheaded by Sarah Vecere at the Glenvar branch. “Poetry can be a voice of wisdom, comfort, and unity in troubling times,” says Vecere. “It’s an especially good time to share poetry that is uplifting or hopeful in tone.”
Area writers such as Christina Nifong, Mary Crockett Hill, and Dee Bowlin have submitted works. Get a sense of what poetry means to these authors, enjoy their work, and even stick around for some wildlife at the end of Hill’s.
April is National Poetry Month, but with the stay-at-home order, currently scheduled through June 10, who knows. Maybe we can enjoy this homegrown poetry throughout the spring.
