We’re kicking off National Poetry Month in April with a closer look into the Friends of the Scranton Public Library’s Poetry Series.
This series includes video recordings of various poets reading their poems in front of a live audience. They have been recorded to give future audiences’ the chance to see them time and time again.
You can check out the Poetry Series on DVD at the Albright Memorial Library or by visiting the YouTube channel to instantly watch the readings.
Here is a taste of the Poetry Series from 2012 featuring poet Naomi Shihab Nye.
