"Women Poets through the Years" - National Poetry Month

“You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise…”

This powerful alignment of words shown above is part of one of my favorite poems called, “Still I Rise,” by Maya Angelou.

The month of April is National Poetry Month and we are celebrating this event by providing a display in the library, saluting “Women Poets through the Years.”

We are introducing the patrons to writers such as: Elizabeth Bishop, Maya Angelou, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Emily Dickinson, Mary Oliver, Gwendolyn Brooks and Anne Carson and Sappho.

The website, Ranker, helped to provide the list of poets for the display.

Now, let’s talk about the Logue Library

If you search on the topic of Women Poets you will receive over 3,300 results in our catalog which includes over 460 eBooks and 315 Print books on these writers.

Take the time to check out the catalog to find a poem that suits your purpose.

You can also see some of the books mentioned in this blog on our Famous Authors page.
