National Poetry Month

April 1April 30

Join the NHCC’s History and Literary Arts program for a month of events including widely distributed pocket-size poems (in English and Spanish), poetry readings and book signings (including those associated with the Children’s Bilingual Book Festival), displays, and other events celebrating Latinx poets.  In 2019, for the 100th birthday of Walt Whitman, we will pair several Whitman poems with poems by Latinx writers, creating a “conversation” between poets who never met, but who talk to each other across time.

Please stay tuned in to this website and our social media for updates and event listings.
