Boston's National Poetry Month Event

Hit the Boston Public Library in Copley Square on Saturday April 14 from 10 to 5, and Sunday April 15 from 1 to 4:45, for the seventh annual Boston National Postry Month Festival. Sunday's stretch includes an ever-popular "open mike" from 2 to 3:30. This wild two-day marathon includes 56 poets, "major and emerging," among them Diana DerHovanessian, Maxine Kumin, Barbara Helfgott-Hyatt, Dan Tobin, Tino Villnueva, Doug Holder, and from Pine Manor College, both Kathleen Aguero and Meg Kearney. Free, open to the public, focused on community, neighborhoods, diversity ... what a weekend! More info: 617-536-5400 is the library phone.
