The sea is very large indeed
And pretty nicely planned
For where there is no sea, you see,
It leaves a place for land. By George Reiter Brill
Celebrate April as National Poetry Month. Ms. Betsy has put together an excellent selection of poetry books for our patrons. Poetry can be fun and inspirational. Try one of the books on display and see for yourself.
“Pam’s Picks” is a book we have all been waiting for, “Land of the Painted Caves” by Jean Auel. It concludes the Earth’s Children series which began in 1980 with “Clan of the Cave Bear.” Reacquaint yourself with Ayla, Jondalar and their clan.
