April is National Poetry Month!

Since 1996, people, libraries, and schools everywhere have been celebrating National Poetry Month.

It’s wonderful that we have a designated month to celebrate, but I know I couldn’t wait until once a year to read or write a poem. It’s just way to long. So grab a book to read (some favorites of mine are listed below) or find a pen and celebrate poetry now!

The Hell with Love: Poems to Mend a Broken Heart:  A reminder that poetry can be fun!

Love Poems from God: Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West: Beautiful, passionate poems.

100 Selected Poems: Just because I like e.e. cummings.

What We Carry: Real poems from a real (amazing) poet.

River of Stars: A wonderful collection of poems by our very own Vonnie Winslow Crist.


Cold Moon Press to Visit the Library of Congress Pickford Theater

The LCPA What If…Science Fiction and Fantasy Forum present Zombies & Angels & Boogeymen, Oh My! on January 11 at noon (Library of Congess, Madison Building, Pickford Theater, LM 302). Please join the press and authors Vonnie Winslow Crist and Michelle D. Sonnier as they discuss how they use myth, legend, and folklore in tales of speculative fiction. We will explore these three characters in modern ways. The authors will then read excerpts from their books. This event is free and open to the public!
