Poetry on the Edge

Inspired by this, we have the beginnings of a Poetry Month display for April. Similar to found art, these book spine poems are assembled, rather than written, from found words and phrases.

Here's an amazing "edge poem," from artist Nina Katchadourian. She calls them "sorted books."

And here's a not-so-amazing one, but it's a start. The title of my first effort is "Success Story."

During National Poetry Month, edge poems by students and teachers will be on display in the library. Come on over and create yours from the library collection. Let the poetry begin!
