April 2016 Staff Picks

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words. ~Robert Frost. April staff picks celebrate the poetry of words and emotion.

We love language: we love its malleability, its diversity, its utility, the ability it provides to speak to one another across millennia… and we savor the work of wordsmiths who elevate language to artform.

This month, in celebration of language, we’re sharing with you our favorite poetry, meditations on language, and the masterful writers who make reading accessible to young people. Enjoy!
