??? WHY Poetry ??? Because “Poetry is an act of Peace,” according to Pablo Neruda, and, in the words of Rita Dove, “Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful.” Tutt Library wants to share the power and beauty of words with you during National Poetry Month. If you’d like to receive illustrated poems in your email inbox on Mondays and Fridays during April, send an email to Librarian Mimi Wheatwind: mimi.wheatwind@coloradocollege.edu

“All poets, all writers are political. They either maintain the status quo, or they say, ‘Something’s wrong, let’s change it for the better’.” ~Sonia Sanchez
