Calling All Poets (and Poetry Lovers)

Are you in love with the written word? Does a rhyming couplet make you lose your doublet?
Okay, seriously, sorry for the bad rhyme - but I'm not the poet. Our speakers next week are!
Take a look at our recent announcement on the Alabama Writer's Forum:

October 1st
12:30-1:30 pm

Brown Bag Salutes National Poetry Day

Emmet O'Neal Library welcomes poets Jeanie Thompson and Jim Reed. In keeping with the National Poetry Day 2008 theme of Work and the Jefferson County Library Cooperative reading of Rick Bragg's Prince of Frogtown for October, Jeanie & Jim will recite poetry in response. Q & A to follow.

Our Brown Bag series meets every Wednesday from 12:30-1:30 in the library's meeting room. Bring a sack lunch, we'll provide coffee, beverages and snacks.

Now, next week's program will for sure be full of good poetry - but if you like bad poetry (and honestly, who doesn't every now and then) try this link to the poem generator. Enjoy!

Questions? Comments?
Let us know here!
Hope to see you next Wednesday.
