April- Poetry Month display


I've been slacking in the old decorating department (never my strong suit). I think I had my Historical Reads display up for 
*hides face in shame* a few months. 
So, in honor of National Poetry Month, my BFF came up with this great idea, which I promptly "stole with permission".





The banner reads "April is National Poetry Month" and it was a pain to make. I used the Ellison to cut letters and Publisher to create patterned triangles. Unfortunately, the backs of the triangles are book pages ripped from a book that happened to feature at least one curse work per page. Not that I think anyone is going to read the back of my banner-but just in case, I sat with a pencil and scribbled out the dirty words like a boss.

The books on display are flagged with charming bookmarks I whipped up.


The Insta-Poem is a pizza pan (the only magnetic sheet we had at home), some magnetic poetry printed on magnetic paper and cut out, and the bottom of an oatmeal canister painted black and filled with glass marbles to create weight for pan support and to discourage moving the display.  I also had a pink plastic tablecloth laying around that had a few holes in it, so I cut some circles from the undamaged parts and used them to break up all of the wood on the counter.

I made a hasty bibliography featuring novels written in verse. Hopefully some patrons will check 'em out. In the meantime, I'm reading a bunch of them myself.
Here are a few I really liked, so far:
