Poetry Friday--Poets House

Last week on Bill Moyers Journal, Moyers had a brief segment on the opening of the new Poets House in New York City.
One of the first things you notice about Poets House is there's no apostrophe in the word poets because Stanley Kunitz said it should not be something someone possesses. It's for everybody.
Just as poetry should be for everyone!

If you're lucky enough to live in the New York City area, or are planning a visit, you may consider scheduling a stop at Poets House, especially when you read about all the events and programs taking place.

Poets House has a library to die for--50,000 books of poetry! I'm sure some of these titles, which we have on our shelves, are also in the collection at Poets House:

A Foot in the Mouth: Poems to Speak, Sing, and Shout [J 811 FOO].

The Spoken Word Revolution: (Slam, Hip Hop, & the Poetry of a New Generation) [811.508 SPO]. The book comes with a CD so that you can listen, too!

Voices: Poetry and Art From Around the World [YA 808.81 VOI].

This week's Poetry Friday Round-Up is being held at The Drift Record. Drift on over and stay a while.
