April is National Poetry Month and Columbus State Library has many ways to celebrate all month long! We are gearing up for another great National Poetry Month in 2017. Our theme this year will focus on children's poetry.
Maggie Smith is the author of three books of poetry: Weep Up (September 2017); The Well Speaks of Its Own Poison (2015); and Lamp of the Body (2005). Her poems appear in Best American Poetry, The Paris Review, Ploughshares, The Gettysburg Review, Guernica, Plume, Virginia Quarterly Review, and elsewhere. Her 2016 poem, “Good Bones,” was hailed as the "official poem of 2016" by PRI (Public International Radio) and has since been translated into nearly a dozen languages.
She lives in Bexley, Ohio, and is a freelance writer and editor.
Maggie Smith, will be at Columbus State Library for a reading April 19 at 1:00p in the Library’s Multimedia Studio. The event is free and open to the public.
