April is National Poetry Month!

The 2021 poster you see here was designed by twelfth grader Bao Lu from Edward R. Murrow High School in Brooklyn, New York, who was the winner of the 2021 National Poetry Month Poster Contest.

Celebrate National Poetry Month with us by taking a look through our Chinook Library Network for poetry books and authors of poetry, and then order them online, or stop by and check out a few books of poetry. Poetry tells stories, stories that become vivid when read through the lines of a poem. What is your poetry story?

Launched by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996, National Poetry Month reminds the public that poets have an integral role to play in our culture and that poetry matters. Over the years, it has become the largest literary celebration in the world, with tens of millions of readers, students, K–12 teachers, librarians, booksellers, literary events curators, publishers, families, and, of course, poets, marking poetry's important place in our lives. In 2021, the Academy of American Poets looks forward to celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of this annual celebration!
