To wrap up National Poetry Month I will be giving away a free copy of Nikki Giovanni’s The 100 Best African American Poems, which was published last fall. The text actually includes more than 100 poems by poets such as Gwendolyn Brooks, Lucille Clifton, Robert Hayden, Langston Hughes, Natasha Trethewey, and Kevin Young just to name a few.
For a chance to win the book, please leave the title of your favorite poem in the comments section along with your first name (or pseudonym). I will put everyone’s name in a container and select one this coming Thursday. The deadline to enter is 8:00 p.m. EST Wednesday, April 27, 2011. Cheers!
