National Poetry Month Kickoff Reading
Humor has the power to disarm. And humor in poetry isn’t just for kids, limericks or dusty bawdy tales-good humor like good poetry, is for everyone. Because at the core of a funny poem lives empathy. We need laughter. We need poetry. So let’s gather, celebrate, laugh and maybe even cry at the Missoula Public Library during April’s National Poetry Month. We will kick off with a reading by our hometown poetic hero and humorist, Mark Gibbons-who is also Montana’s Poet Laureate. Gibbons and other local poets will read their humor-inspired verse and favorite poems by other poets of wit and wisdom.
