April is National Poetry Month, and Carl Sandburg Home is offering a variety of ways to celebrate and enjoy the art of poetry. There will be an art exhibit, a celebration of local and national student poetry contest winners, and a community reading of The People, Yes. The community is invited to read five-minute segments of Sandburg’s book-length poem that lauds the perseverance of the American people in plain-spoken language. It references American history, culture, and common stories. Go online to sign up to read.
