April is the National Poetry Month.

Pictured is a brand new book of poetry in our collection. Naobi Shihab Nye collected poems from young authors - under 25, as she defines it - into a cool project. She says:
"Reading the poems for Time You Let Me In reminded me of the sensation of vast horizontal breathing. The voices of these wonderful writers open up into whole worlds of roots and humor, and snazzy intelligence. No matter what age we are, we need those voices." (Introduction, p. xvi)
