National Poetry Month starts off beautifully and with a bang, what with every media outlet and news feature program showing "Million's Poet," and Hissa Hillal (see our blogpost: April is Poetry Month), but Books on First will help end the month the same way, with our own Open Mic Poetry Night, on Friday, 30 April, at 7pm. Come support local poets and performance artists as well as present your own or your favorite poets' works.
Meanwhile, enjoy this wonderful video reading & interview of Marie Ponsot and Edward Hirsch, courtesy of Wall Street Journal online.
Sauk Valley's premier bookstore/coffeehouse features fiction, non-fiction, children's & local interest books.
Open 7 days/week, we also have fine coffees & pastries, wooden puzzles, children's art supplies & other toys, handmade fair trade goods plus priceless conversation. Special orders welcomed.
