Celebrating National Poetry Month

This year I decided to put up a Juvenile poetry display (since the adult display area was already taken up with my FIU faculty authors display, to coincide with the reception) instead.  We had a great Shakespeare bust to make use of, and the juvenile poetry books are colorful and imaginative!  There are poetry books on every theme imaginable, including Big Foot!

Jim's cd Reaching for the Stars and my poetry chapbook Shining from a Different Firmament are now both on sale at FIU's Barnes & Noble bookstore!  The Provost's office and the bookstore had a reception honoring faculty authors with recent publications and the Dean of Libraries mentioned in her speech that we might be the first husband and wife team to have publications come out the same year!

Jim has an ebook textbook coming out later this year and I hope to get my 2nd chapbook published at some point, so hopefully we will repeat the feat at next year's event!  I also put together a display of FIU faculty authors' books at the Green library in the new books area.
