National Poetry Month

The 2015 National Poetry Month poster, designed by award-winning cartoonist Roz Chast, features the line "Ink runs from the corners of my mouth. There is no happiness like mine. I have been eating poetry." from the poem "Eating Poetry" by the late U.S. Poet Laureate Mark Strand. Click here for a tribute to Mark Strand, compiled by the Academy of American Poets to celebrate his life and poetic contributions. Strand passed away on November 29, 2014.
