It’s National Poetry Month!

♫♪♫♪♫ Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
We made a poetry Edelweiss collection,
Just for librarians like you! ♫♪♫♪♫

Happy National Poetry Month! Check out our amazing Edelweiss collection of nearly 200(!) great poetry books and then hear some poems from our friends at Farrar, Straus & Giroux—literally.

Inspired by John Giornio’s classic Dial-A-Poem, FSG made a poetry hotline of their own. Each day you can call 949-DIAL-FSG (949-342-5374) to hear President and Publisher (and poet himself) Jonathan Galassi recite one of his favorite poems from a recently published collection. They’re putting new poems on the answering machine every weekday, so keep calling!
