Presented in partnership with Books & Books

In celebration of National Poetry Month, South Florida-based poets are available to the public at Books & Books Coral Gables throughout the month of April for two alternating micro-residency engagements:

(1) Check out a Poet, modeled on the Human Library, wherein members of the general public are invited to spend 15 minutes of one-on-one time with a local poet—hear them read, ask them questions, and develop their own poems under the guidance of a professional.

(2) Poems to Order, where poets in residence produce original poems on the spot for bookstore patrons upon request.

You'll meet O, Miami Ambassadors Lissa Batista and Rani Ruado who can share more about National Poetry Month!
