     Poetry Month #2 

April is National Poetry Month  Penfield Public Library is celebrating National Poetry Month with several displays and a program to inspire people of all ages to read and write poetry. Library staff member and poet Kathleen Wakefield has designed several displays to reflect different styles and aspects of poetry. The entrance display, "The Poetry of Everyday Things", shows that poems can be about even the most familiar objects, such as neckties, lentils, and eggs. In the Teen area, an authentic Japanese kimono is on display to promote a haiku-writing contest for young adults. Inspired younger poets are encouraged to create in a poetry corner established in the Children's Room, and resulting poems will be displayed for everyone to enjoy. To further promote the benefits of reading poetry, the library's Book Discussion Group will discuss "The Poetry of Food" on Thursday, April 21st, at 7:00 p.m. The discussion, led by Ms. Wakefield, is open to the public and does not require registration. Visit the library prior to the discussion to pick up the poetry discussion packet at the Circulation Desk.
