National Poetry Month @ Gleeson

April is National Poetry Month! We’re celebrating a couple ways.

We’ve got a display of Women Poets of the Beat Generation up in the foyer of Gleeson Library through the end of the month. The display was made in conjunction with a feature from the new issue of the Ignatian Literary Magazine on the same topic. Stop by, read some poems, and check out some books.


On Thursday, April 14, Gleeson Library is cosponsoring the Ignatian Literary Magazine’s issue release¬†party. Join us in the Del Santo Reading Room (Lone Mtn. 270) at 5 pm for refreshments. Contributor readings begin at 5:30 pm.


On Thursday, April 21, we will be celebrating Poem in Your Pocket Day by giving out laminated poetry keepsakes.

On Thursday, April 28, we will be showcasing titles by the Women Beat Poets with a Rare Book Room pop-up in the library foyer, next to the display. Come get a close look at some of the Rare Book Room’s treasures.

Looking forward to seeing you at any or all of our events. Long live poetry!
