Posted by Maryan Captan

April, already? Almost! We can’t believe how quickly the year’s going. April is National Poetry Month and we can’t wait to see what Philadelphia has in store. The ground is blossoming pink and yellow and though it’s not quite warm yet, we can feel it just around the corner. The last fews days of March are promising but we can’t wait for warm weather adventures and poetry in Clark Park! Check out this week's Bookish Events:

There is definitely nothing happening on Wednesday April 1st​. Nothing. At all. APRIL FOOLS! That joke was weak, actually I’m pretty sure it was just a lie, but if you’re free Wednesday night ​you should absolutely come out to Big Blue Marble Bookstore ​for an evening of humor and storytelling.
