April is National Poetry Month and the Milpitas Library is celebrating it all month long!

This week on Wednesday, April 17th at 6:00 PM, you can check out the 2nd Annual Variety Show & Slam-Off with David P and Jen G.  There will be lots of surprises and awesome poetry!

On Wednesday, April 24th at 6:00 PM, poetry lovers can enjoy or participate in our Recitation Contest, where poets compete by reciting great poetry from memory.

There is also the Teen Poetry Contest running throughout the month which allows teen poets to turn in their poetry for a chance to win a money prize as well as be entered into a national level poetry contest.

Finally we have the April Poem of the month provided for us by The Peaceful Poets' own Lori Stotlar.
