Each April brings a shower of poetry to the South Puget Sound. Inaugurated as National Poetry Month by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, the entire month is dedicated to showcasing and celebrating poets, poetry, libraries, bookstores, and the literary arts community across the nation.

The South Sound has its own praiseworthy poets with words to spit about our own place in the American poetry scene. A few big name poets will read their works Sunday at the Museum of Glass. Tacoma's Poet Laureate Josie Emmons Turner, Washington State Poet Laureate Kathleen Flenniken, and poets Rick Barot and Michael Schmeltzer will be rhymin' and readin' their swirl of stanzas.

[Museum of Glass, 3-5 p.m., free admission, 1801 Dock St., Tacoma, 253.284.4750]
