To commemorate National Poetry Month, April 2014, the Raritan Valley Federation of Libraries, of which Bernardsville Library is a member, will publish its second annual Poetry Month Celebration Anthology.  Local poets are invited to submit up to two poems to Bernardsville Library by Friday, March 7 in order to be considered for the anthology.  This year’s theme is “Our Town,” commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the play by Thornton Wilder.  This theme can be used as an inspiration, but is not a required poem subject.  The poet who best uses the “Our Town” theme will receive one pair of tickets to “Our Town” by Thornton Wilder at the George Street Playhouse. 

For details on submitting poems, a Poetry Submission Form is available at the Library or can be downloaded from the library’s website,  

Local poets whose work is chosen for the Anthology will also be invited to read their poem(s) at the library’s Poetry Month Reading on Tuesday, April 22 at 7:00 pm.  An open mike will follow for members of the audience who wish to read their own poems to the assembled group.

The libraries participating in the Raritan Valley Federation Anthology publication include: Bernards Township, Bernardsville, Dunellen, Middlesex, New Brunswick and Raritan. 

For further information on Bernardsville’s program, call the library at 908-766-0118 and ask for Madelyn English.
