April is National Poetry Month. In fact, this month marks the 20th anniversary of the inaugural National Poetry Month developed by the Academy of American Poets in 1996.
Texas State University Libraries offer a number of poetry related resources. Check out call numbers PS301 – 326 for American poetry (you’ll find poetry in other languages throughout the Ps) for books in the stacks. Library databases offer further access to poetry, particularly Twentieth-Century American Poetry, Poetry & Short Story Reference Center, and Litfinder. Poets will often read from their works at the Alkek Library in San Marcos. This week, Thursday, April 14th, Lisha Adele Garcia and Tomas Q. Morin will be reading at Alkek’s Instant Theatre from 3:00pm – 4:30pm.
National Poetry Month is one of the largest literary events in the world. Let the University Library help you be a part of it.
