2008 National Poetry Month
(Picture downloaded from http://www.poets.org/page.php/prmID/41 2/26/08)
National Poetry Month was established by the Academy of American Poets as a month-long, national celebration of poetry to increase the attention paid by individuals and the media to the art of poetry, to living poets, to the poetic heritage, and to poetry books and magazines, with the hope of achieving an increase in the visibility, presence, and accessibility of poetry in our culture.
To mark National Poetry Month this year, we have compiled a bibliography featuring women poets and their works in the McCain Library collection.
