National Poetry Month
Each April, National Poetry Month, Skokie Public Library displays the winning poems from the most recent Teen Poetry Contest. Held annually, the contest is judged by Skokie Public Library librarians.
During the 2004 and 2006 celebrations of National Poetry Month, a hip hop poetry artist performed for, and interacted with, enthusiastic teen audiences. Danny McKeever, known as dannyboy, writes and focuses on issues that reflect, reveal, inspire, and uplift the human spirit.
