Book cover: The BreakBeat PoetsApril is National Poetry Month – don’t be afraid, it’s really a good thing.  While the thought of rereading Seamus Heaney’s translation of Beowulf may have you trembling and a volume of William Butler Yeats may put you off, We dare you to find a nice quiet chair where the sun will warm you, with your favorite beverage within reach and allow yourself to dig into someone else’s view of the world and the human condition.

We have added an excellent selection of contemporary collections that we’re sure will break your poetry phobia.  And to make it easy, they are waiting for you on the display as you enter the library.

Take up this challenge and see what you’ve been missing.  Who knows, you might just find a new passion.

Here are our newest titles:Book cover: Tablets & Pen
