Poem in Your Pocket Day

Thanks to cloudscome for mentioning Poem in Your Pocket Day. I researched it and discovered the PIYP website:
In honor of April's National Poetry Month, New York City is hosting the 6th annual Poem in Your Pocket Day (PIYP) on Thursday, April 17, 2008. This series of events is intended to celebrate the versatility and inspiration of poetry by encouraging New Yorkers of all ages to carry a poem in their pockets to share with friends, classmates, coworkers and family. Readings across the city throughout the day will culminate in a public poetry open-mike session for kids and adults in Bryant Park at 42nd Street and 6th Avenue in Manhattan.

This year, Poem in Your Pocket Day and Support Teen Literature Day are the same day, April 17th. Perhaps you New Yorkers will attend a PIYP event, then leave behind a book as part of Operation Teen Book Drop!

I am rocking the drop - are you?
