In recognition of National Poetry Month 2019, the daytime and evening adult book groups are reading poetry.

The evening group, which meets 6:30 – 7:45 p.m. Thursday, April 4, is reading “The Dark Between Stars” by Atticus.  The Canadian poet who chooses to remain anonymous — he wears a mask at public readings — became famous first on Instagram (@atticuspoetry).  As of this writing, he has 1.1 million followers.  We’re reading his second book, “The Dark Between Stars” for April’s evening discussion.  His first book is “Her Wild.”

The daytime group, meeting from 2 – 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, will discuss Roger Housden’s book “Ten Poems to Change Your Life,” the first title in his the best-selling Ten Poems series, which began in 2001 and ended with the publication in 2018 of “Ten Poems for Difficult Times.”  He’s written 26 books.

To reserve a copy of the book for the group discussions, please call the library at 802-893-4644.
