April Is National Poetry Month

In a salute to the unforgettable voices of poets past and present, Bank Street Bookstore celebrates National Poetry Month throughout April. It is an apt time to acknowledge those who elevate thoughts, words, and images to become art on the printed page. One of our country's favorite poets is Langston Hughes, whose New York City brownstone is alive with the sound of written traditions thanks to the efforts of writer Renée Watson. Watch this segment from "CBS This Morning" for information on Renée and the I, Too, Collective arts organization she founded in the former Hughes home to bring together voices young and old in celebration of reading, literacy, and poems.
