National Poetry Month
April 1 - May 31Free
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. A youth art exhibit titled Let a Joy Keep You is on display from April 1 to May 31. The exhibit title and inspiration comes from the first line of Sandburg’s poem Joy. Each of the 71 canvases reflects how the young artists chose to interpret what joy means.
