What's Happening at Book Readers Heaven - Call For Poetry...

The Academy of American Poets has unveiled the official poster design for National Poetry Month, which takes place in April.  National Book Award finalist Roz Chast designed this year’s poster. The poster includes a line of poetry by the poet Mark Strand, who died last year. “Ink runs from the corner of my mouth,” reads the poster. “There is no happiness like mine. I have been eating poetry.” The poster will be handed out to more than 120,000 people in schools, libraries and bookstores during National Poetry Month.

OK, How many of you who made 24,409 stops in February write or enjoy poetry??? Well, April has now officially been called Poetry Month, so if you'd like to share some of yours, please consider Book Readers Heaven for guest poetry spots! Leave a comment if you'd like to share some of your work or contact me directly if you wish! I will be using both blogs for the poetry, so if you have an adult poem or two, I can probably use it...

A special welcome to visitors from Brazil, Israel,  Malaysia, the Netherlands, South Korea and Trinidad... Keep coming back! Most countries now have a "friend" feeling since you visit every month... Thanks so much!

March will also include a number of Blog Tours, so be on the lookout for those special spotlights... Including Anne Louise O'Connell with Deep Deceit; Nashville Mercy by M. Maitland DeLand, M.D.  and What The Fly Saw by Frankie Y. Bailey...
