As we close out March, and slide into April, engage with us in celebration of National Poetry Month. Beyond the similes, metaphors, and love for language, National Poetry Month illuminates poets’ integral role in our culture and lives. Join us in celebrating National Poetry Month with our partners O, Miami, and Miami Book Fair, to build and nurture a community, rooted in the potency of poetry. O, Miami kicks off their National Poetry Month schedul at the Black Archives Historic Lyric Theater at 7:30 pm with award-winning poet Hanif Abdurraqib and writer Alexandra T. Vasquez discussing how music and other cultural activities forge a sense of place. As an ode to poetry, let’s rejoice in the written and spoken word!
