2011 National Poetry Month

Elizabeth Bishop and National Poetry Month

King Library will have a display up this month in the foyer of the first floor in honor of National Poetry Month. This year's theme for the display is the works of Elizabeth Bishop because it’s the centennial of her birth. You can see an explanation of the creation of the poster here.
