Kevin Young, this year's Best American Poetry guest editor, will be criss-crossing the country over the next few months. If you're lucky, he's planning to stop in your town. You can find his full schedule here. In addition to being an award winning poet, non-fiction writer, and anthologist, Kevin curates the Raymond Danowski Poetry Library at Emory University and is the curator of literary collections. His exhibit, Shadows of the Sun: The Crosbys, the Black Sun Press & the Lost Generation is up through March 16 and should not be missed. David and Kevin talked about this historic exhibit last fall. You can listen here.
T. P. Winch writes to tell us about a wonderful project undertaken by the Crozet Library, a branch of the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library, based in Charlottesville, Virginia. Three years ago, the library started the Poem in Your Pocket Day program as part of National Poetry Month. You can watch a video about last year's program here.
