It’s National Poetry Month! It’s time to enjoy your favorite poets or find some new ones like Jalal al-Din Rumi, Billy Collins, e.e. cummings, an anthology of poets, or one of the many other famous and not-so-famous poets we have in the collection. Don’t like poetry? Not a problem. Try a novel in verse, you might be surprised at how much you like it. Some of the novels in verse in our collection are:
-The Marlowe Papers by Ros Barber (secret identities, faked murder, and enough drama for at least three Shakespeare plays)
-Lies, Knives and Girls in Red Dresses by Ron Koertge (modern true stories behind fairy tales)
-Only Revolutions by Mark Z. Danielewski (a topsy-turvy modern Romeo and Juliet tale)
-After the Kiss by Terra Elan McVoy (two high school seniors getting through their last semester)
-The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus by Sonya Sones (a novel of middle age, motherhood, marriage and mayhem)
… the list goes on. Try something new this month and tell us if you like it.
