April is National Poetry Month

Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is now held every April, when publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools and poets around the country band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Thousands of businesses and non-profit organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events.

To celebrate National Poetry Month the Fiske Free Library will present a poetry reading by Dianalee Velie of Newbury, New
Hampshire on Thursday, April 15th at 3:00 PM.

Dianalee has taught poetry, memoir, and short story at universities and colleges in New York, Connecticut and New Hampshire and in private workshops throughout the Northeast. Her award-winning poetry and short stories have been published in hundreds of literary journals throughout the USA and Canada.

She will return to the library on Thursday, April 22nd to host two poetry writing workshops for children. The first will be from 1:00 until 2:30 for ages 5 to 8; the second will be from 3:00 until 5:00 for ages 9 to 12.
