April is National Poetry Month, and to celebrate, the library at OSUIT will host the 8th Annual Poets Live - Poetry Reading on Wednesday, April 17 at 2:30 p.m. in the ONG Lounge of the Student Union.

National Poetry Month was first introduced in 1996 by the Academy of American Poets as a way to increase awareness and appreciation of the art form in the United States. Poets Live is a free event open to all OSUIT students, faculty and staff who can take part as a spectator or by reading original poems and ones from their favorite writers.

To register for the event you can use the Poets Live registration form. Questions about the event can be directed to Jenny Duncan, library director, at 918-293-5488, by email at jenny.duncan@okstate.edu , or by texting OSUIT & Name to 66746.

“Poets Live is a very collaborative event with faculty members who really help make it a success” said Jenny, “We typically have about 50 students and employees attend, and it’s always very entertaining!”

In his classic poem “The Birches,” American great Robert Frost wrote,

“I’d like to get away from earth awhile,
And then come back to it and begin over.”

At Poets Live, enjoy refreshments while engaging in the literary landscape of the soul.
