National Poetry Month 2013

For those who don't already know, the Poetry Pole is a functional piece of art that's proudly displayed in our store and inspired by a similar project undertaken by a Yakima small press publisher named Jim Bodeen. Island Books owner Roger Page decided our community likewise needed a place to share poems and thoughts. A better bulletin board, if you will. He told the story to a local artist and teacher named Roz Ray, and she led her alternative high school class in the production of this beautiful work.

Help it flower by attaching your pages of verse to its now-bare trunk. Use the words of a favorite author or write something of your own. What better way to celebrate verse?
