April is National Poetry Month and Arlington has a number of activities planned to help promote poetry and the literary arts. Two are taking place this Sunday, April 10.
First, a Peanuts-like poetry booth (left) will be set up at the Columbia Pike farmers market starting at 10 a.m. A local poet will offer a free poem or literary advice to anyone who asks. The booth will also be set up at the market the following Sunday.
Arlington County announced earlier this week that it’s accepting applications in an effort to select the county’s first poet laureate.
