Poem in Your Pocket Day – April 17, 2008

JJML invites you to join the Academy of American Poets in celebrating the first national Poem in Your Pocket Day. The idea is simple: select a poem then carry it with you (poem in your pocket) and unfold it with family, friends and coworkers throughout the day.

For the past five years, New Yorkers have been unfolding poems on Poem In Your Pocket Day and reading them in parks, libraries, schools, workplaces and bookstores. Organize your own Poem In Your Pocket Day event during National Poetry Month, or visit http://poets.org/page.php/prmID/406 for ways to celebrate this April 17th.
