    “People like poetry like people like music: nobody doesn’t. If some think they don’t, they just haven’t listened to the right thing.”
    –Richard Kenney, UW professor and poet

    You Are Never Where You AreDid you know that April is National Poetry Month? You Are Never Where You Are, the 2010-11 UW Common Book, is a collection of poems designed to celebrate creativity, individual voices, and language. This month, the UW Common Book and campus partners bring you a slew of poetic opportunities. From major events with national poets like “Poetry: From Pulitzer to Performance” to a film series and Seattle’s first installment of the acclaimed Encyclopedia Show, you’ll find your verse-based tune–maybe its rhythm will even be in iambic pentameter.

    Celebrate imagination, voice, and persistence this April.
    Celebrate National Poetry Month.
