April is National Poetry Month

...and we're celebrating with none other than Children's Poet Laureate, J. Patrick Lewis.  Now before you tell me you're really not into poetry and all that flowery language stuff, I dare you to pick up one of his books.  His books and poems for children are clever, rhythmic, and full of heart and hilarity.

Rarely do we get the opportunity to hang out with such an accomplished poet and author who also happens to be someone you'd like to sit down and shoot the you-know-what with.  Join us next Thursday, April 12th from 7pm-8pm at the Centerville library for an interactive get together and book signing. 

In the meantime, visit his website to find out more about him (don't miss the photos of his adorable family!) http://www.jpatricklewis.com/
