Dear library friends,
This Wednesday, July 17th, is Take Your Poet to Work Day! So if you are tired of filling out TPS reports without a raven hovering over a poet hovering over your shoulder, then remember to cut out your very own Edgar Allan Poe in time for tomorrow. When asked for those pesky reports, you may quethe, “Nevermore.” While the puppet poet may not grant you actual immunity from responsibility, it should still be a good bit of fun for the middle of your week. You can find templates and instructions at Tweetspeak, or make your own. Some ideas: Kenneth Koch popping out of a cola can, Gertrude Stein wrapped like a warm custom which is necessary around your morning coffee mug, or Langston Hughes wearing several shades of blues. We will be looking forward to anyone coming in with a poet in tow, and if you don’t have a poet of your own, you can always find one on our shelves!
