Poetry is a powerful vehicle for celebrating and sharing our personal narratives.  This April we’re joining Minneapolis-based Milkweed Editions and other independent booksellers across the state to commemorate the fusion of art and history.  We’re inviting poets of all ages and experience levels to share their favorites –published or original– during our first annual Poem in Your Pocket Day open-mic event.  
 
Every April, on Poem in Your Pocket Day, people celebrate by selecting a poem, carrying it with them, and sharing it with others throughout the day at schools, bookstores, libraries, parks and workplaces.  We’d love to hear you recite your selection at the History Center.  Need help finding one?  Check with your local bookstore, library, or this specially curated downloadable catalog, perfectly formatted for printing, folding and pocketing:
