In honor of our two favorite April celebrations—National Poetry Month and National Library Week—Davis Library is featuring a “Poetry Palooza” interactive display that will last until the end of the month. In addition to having fun, our goal is to recognize the transformative power of both words and libraries.
For the occasion six different “poetry stations” are located at various points on the Davis Library’s Main Floor. Library visitors are encouraged to use each of these activity centers to produce and display their own poems. Beginning at 8:30 AM on Monday, April 18, 2016 the Friends of the Davis Library is hosting a “Poets’ Tea & Morning Coffee” where everyone is welcome to share in some refreshments and readings of their favorite poetry creations. Of course, participants are also encouraged to read someone else’s poetry as well!

Davis Library is also using the event to help promote the Jenkins Center for Student Success’s revival of the Atwood Review, a literary magazine originally printed and distributed by the university in the 1980-1990s. Submissions are being accepted throughout the spring and summer for the fall 2016 debut issue. For more complete details on the new and improved Atwood Review, contact Dr. Stephanie Alexander, Student Success Director, at 1.800.282.7201, ext. 7366.
|Original publications of "Atwood Review" are available in Davis Library's General Collection|
