Today is the last day of my display in the entrance hall of The Library Center in Springfield, Missouri. It has been a pleasure to know that a lot of people have seen my samples during April and I’m grateful to everyone at TLC for inviting me to put my poetry related books and materials in the showcase to celebrate National Poetry Month.
If you live in the area and would like to see the display, it will be up all day today and I’ll go out at 10:00 in the morning to put everything back in boxes and take home.
Thanks for the good wishes yesterday. Our event went well and I think the kids who came with parents and grandparents had a fine time. Some brought their own poems and others preferred to read poems from my book. Kathleen O’Dell was everywhere doing everything to make it all happen smoothly (including taking pictures and video) and Melinda Arnold came with two staff members and a volunteer from Dickerson Park Zoo to wow the audience with a milk snake, a corn snake, two screech owls, and a hawk. It was a beautiful way to spend a gorgeous Sunday afternoon in spring and I’m grateful to everyone who came to join the fun!
Here’s my display for National Poetry Month. It’s in a case in the entrance hallway at The Library Center. I hope you’ll stop to see it if you’re there this month.
