April was National Poetry Month and so most of the library events I hosted were somewhat related to poetry. The book we started in April and finished in May was Paper Hearts, a novel told in verse.

Remember those things where you wrote your name down the side of a paper and then came up with a word or phrase that started with each letter of your name? Yep, acrostic poetry is like that.
