A celebration of local poets and their literary stylings will be back at the Marshall Public Library next month.
As part of the library’s honoring of National Poetry Month, the Poetry Wall will return for the month of April. Started by Librarian Joan Juskie in 2001, the display allows local writers of all ages to show off their work and have it be preserved in the Marshall Public Library’s collection.
“April marks 400 years since the death of one of the world’s greatest poets, William Shakespeare,” said Amy Campbell, Reference Librarian. “To mark the anniversary, we’d like to especially encourage Shakespeare-style sonnets be submitted.”
The Shakespeare inspired sonnets will also be read at a special party at the Library Saturday, April 23 at 2 p.m.
Entries can be mailed to the Marshall Public Library c/o Amy Campbell, 113 South Garfield Avenue, Pocatello, Idaho 83204. Entries can also be hand-delivered to the library.
