The library will hosting a Favorite Poem Reading in celebration of National Poetry Month. This event is open to participants who wish to share a favorite poem with the audience. The poems chosen must be poems you have read and not your original work and each presentation is limited to no more than 5 minutes.

This event will be facilitated by Tom Terceira, a local artist, poetry lover and experienced group facilitator and Mr. Ira Schaffer.  Mr. Schaffer is the  2016 winner of the Galway Kinnell Contest and holder of a Ph.D. in English.

The Favorite Poem Project is dedicated to celebrating, documenting and encouraging poetry’s role in Americans’ lives. Robert Pinsky, a former Poet Laureate of the United States, founded the Favorite Poem Project shortly after the Library of Congress appointed him to the post in 1997. Local Favorite Poem readings allow diverse members of a single community to come together to share, the poems they love. There have been nearly 1,000 Favorite Poem readings across the United States. Invariably, the readings contribute to a convivial community spirit. The only rule for an event affiliated with the Favorite Poem Project is that poems recited are NOT poems the readers or their friends or relatives have written—but, rather poems they have read, perhaps many times, and to which they feel a personal attachment. The reader is asked to discuss what the poem means to them and take under 5 minutes.

To find out more about The Project: http://www.favoritepoem.org/about.html

 A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's PurposeCheck Our Catalog

Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one. In very practical terms, Tolle leads readers into this new consciousness to learn to live and breathe freely.
