What Happens to Poems?

Shaun Tan's Tales from Outer Suburbia (shelved at JFic TAN) is a beautiful book full of astonishing, whimsical stories and illustrations. One of the stories, Distant Rain, talks about the fate of all the little poems people write but don't let others read.

This tiny excerpt (p. 28) should give you a taste of his extraordinary style. Come by and check the book out! While you're in, have a look at our poetry month displays in the lobby and the Bragdon Reading Room.
