Our Poetry Month Competition winner is…

Sue Tracy! Congratulations to Sue for her winning limerick:

This is an old book I adore,

A jolly good read to the core,

I laugh and I cry,

I gasp and I sigh,

But my book club thinks it’s a bore!

We’ve all felt your pain on this one! Of course the Everett Public Library can help you avoid the gentle snoring of your book club with some suggestions and ready-made book group sets that can be borrowed.

Keep your eyes peeled for Sue’s poem on our Facebook site, as well as our electronic reader board outside the Main Library. Thank you for all your wonderful entries; it was a lot of fun getting to read them. Hopefully you enjoyed our Poetry Month celebration and discovered some new favorites through our weekly staff picks, Facebook posts about poetry resources, and more. We look forward to celebrating Poetry Month with you again in 2014 with new features and competitions.

Be sure to visit A Reading Life for more reviews and news of all things happening at the Everett Public Library.
