NC Events: National Poetry Month Events at Triangle Bookstores

National Poetry Month 2010Each year in honor of National Poetry Month (that’s April, in case you didn’t know), the Regulator Bookshop in Durham hosts a series of Tuesday night poetry readings — and this year’s line-up looks great for the next three weeks. No word (yet?) on whether there will be an event on the final Tuesday of the month, but in the meantime, check out:

  • Florence NashFish Music, and Grey BrownWhen They Tell Me, on Tuesday, April 6
  • Tony AbbottNew & Selected Poems, 1989-2009, and Debra KaufmanMoon Mirror Whiskey Wind, on Tuesday, April 13
  • David ManningContinents of Light, and Bruce LaderLandscapes of Longing, on Tuesday, April 20

Additionally, both of the Triangle’s other big independents will be presenting poetry-themed events. On Sunday, April 11, Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh offers up a trio of North Carolina poets: Nancy CarterNear the End of the Rainy Season, Peter MakuckLong Lens, and Scott OwensPaternity.

And McIntyre’s Books in Fearrington Village continues its monthly series in conjunction with the North Carolina Poetry Society with a reading by Lenard MooreA Temple Looming, and John AmenAt the Threshold of Academy, on Sunday, April 25.
