National Poetry Month at McIntyre Library

April is National Poetry Month! UW-Eau Claire students in Assistant Professor Melissa Girard's English 348 (Topics in American Literature), are celebrating National Poetry Month with the McIntyre Library.

Starting on Monday, April 2, the library blog will feature a poem selected by a student in English 348. In addition to reading the poem for yourself, you'll be able to read a few words from the student who selected the poem. A new poem will appear every weekday in April.
