Poem in Your Pocket Day

NATIONAL POEM IN YOUR POCKET DAY

Celebrate your favorite poet with the Honors College on Thursday, April 18th!  National Poem in Your Pocket Day was initiated by the Academy of American Poets in 2008 as a way to encourage Americans to share the poetry that moves, amuses or enlightens us.   So choose your favorite, print it out and get ready.  Shortly before the big day, a giant “Pocket” will go up right outside C Tower and we’ll be able to gather all of our choices in one place.

Haven’t found your poem yet?  The Academy has some suggestions.  Check out their curated collection here:
