The Children’s Department at the Concord Free Public Library has installed a Poetry Walk on the Main Library front lawn to celebrate National Poetry Month through the month of April. The Poetry Walk, originally conceptualized in partnership with local non-profit Gaining Ground, features Renga-style poems celebrating the seasons written by students in the Virtual Writing Studio, led by staff and resident poet Cary Stough. In addition, visitors can also enjoy the book, The year comes round : haiku through the seasons written by Sid Farrar. The book is beautifully illustrated by Concord’s own Caldecott Honor winner, Ilse Plume. The book features 12 haiku poems about nature that follow the months of the year.
