If you’re not aware, April is National Poetry Month. Next week is also National Library Week. AtYourLibrary.org is celebrating both with a contest. Use the books from your library to compose a Book Spine Poem telling why the library matters to you (deadline April 20). I haven’t made it out to my library yet, but wanted to make my own book spine poem. This isn’t themed about the library, and was made using my personal library.
A book spine poem is made by stacking book spines so the titles make a free verse poem.
In case that’s hard to read, or the image doesn’t load, it reads:
The Shadow Warrior
Out of Avalon
Through Stone and Sea
Too Stubborn to Die
It was a fun challenge going through all my books, pulling and mixing and shifting trying to find something I liked and that told a story. I’d lvoe to see what you come up with from your own libraries.
