Book Spine Poetry Contest - Talking About Tolerance

Event Type: Library Event
Date: 10/1/2012
Start Time: All Day
 Book spine poems are just that - simple, short poems created from the words on the spines of books. To echo a major theme in our Fond du Lac Reads selection of 'Wingshooters,' the library and the Foot of the Lake Poetry Collective will sponsor a book spine poetry contest on the theme of tolerance. The rules are simple: create a poem using the spines of any of the books or movies in the library’s collection. Poets from the Foot of the Lake will judge entries on Oct 26 and award first, second and third prizes for those that best convey the theme in the most-creative way. Stop by the Help Desk for more information and to enter.
