Library to Sponsor Poetry Egg Hunt
What: Poetry Egg Hunt
When: April 15-19, 2019
Where: Burling Library
Please join the Grinnell College Libraries in celebrating National Poetry Month with a Poetry Egg Hunt during the week of April 15-19 in Burling Library.
Over 100 eggs filled with a poem and a treat will be hidden around Burling Library and patrons are free to open the eggs and share their poems with others.
We ask two things:
- Please return the eggs to one of the baskets located at the Burling circulation desk
- Please limit two eggs per person per day to give everyone a chance to have a fun experience of finding and reading a good poem
National Poetry Month is the largest literary celebration in the world, with tens of millions of readers, students, K-12 teachers, librarians, booksellers, literary events curators, publishers, bloggers, and, of course, poets marking poetry’s important place in our culture and our lives every April.
Poets.org provides poems, events, and much more for poetry lovers and educators. Search their curated collection of over 9,500 poems, over 3,000 poet biographies, as well as essays about poetry, and some of the most important books, anthologies, and textbooks about the art form ever written.
