Mes nacional de la poesía

Poetry Month April 2018

Mes nacional de la poesía

Poetas reconocidos mundialmente honran los escenarios de la Biblioteca

Abril es el Mes nacional de la poesía y la Biblioteca Pública de San Francisco ha programado abundantes eventos para atraer a toda la comunidad. Desde lecturas por poetas reconocidos mundialmente hasta películas sobre poetas nacionales laureados, desde poemas en su bolsillo a manualidades de poesía oscura, la Biblioteca tiene algo para todos en honor al Mes nacional de la poesía.

Como escribe la poeta laureada de San Francisco:

People ask me why poetry?
In this tense time we see larger audiences
People are not just buying more books at more small bookstores
They are coming to feel the poems in person
The way they rattle, as sound through the nouns of our bodies
If you already know why, come to an event
If you don't know, come feel what it's about.

Todos los programas y las exposiciones son gratis y abiertos al público.
