30 poems in 30 days, on video

Diesel BookstoreNational Poetry Month

The good folks at Diesel Bookstore -- from its outposts in both northern and southern California -- are celebrating National Poetry Month on video. On the company website, they're posting a poem a day, read by their staff, in videos that are generally more interesting than that might sound.

The video above, "The Divers Clothes" by Rumi, kicked off the series. So far, it has included poems by William Blake, Philip Larkin, Arthur Rimbaud, Molly Bendall and Brian Teare, with more to come each day in April.

I'm in Northern California but haven't heard of Diesel--however, it's great to hear of a bookstore that doesn't sound like a huge chain (unless I'm wrong!)....

Happy Poetry Month to all.

Thanks so much for the link--I'm looking forward to this!
