 The Ohio Center for the Book at Cleveland Public Library is proud to present Ohio Poem in Your Pocket Day

Thursday, April 18, 2013, is National Poem in Your Pocket Day. We have produced pocket-sized poems by a variety of Ohio poets for you to carry with you and share with your family, friends, and co-workers.  The 2013 poems are by Mary Biddinger, George Bilgere, John Drury, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Kathy Fagan, Nikki Giovanni, Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, Matt Hart, Dave Lucas, Philip Metres, and Mary Weems. Poems will also be available at all Cleveland Public Library locations.

On Ohio Poem in Your Pocket Day, Thursday, April 18, 2013, join us as we besprinkle downtown Cleveland with poetry. Meet in the Literature Department of Cleveland Public Library at 11:45 a.m. to receive a packet of poems. Teams will pour onto the streets of downtown Cleveland, passing out poems at popular gathering places.
