April is National Poetry Month, so join us in celebrating the power of poetry to #inspirereaders and transform words into windows of opportunity.
Words have and will continue to be one of the most powerful forces in the universe. Those who master them, master the world. Poems give voice to aspirations, successes, failures, and concerns. It is with this understanding that we celebrate one of the wordsmiths of this generation. In the following video, Jason Reynolds, an award-winning young adult author and poet, shares his thoughts about the power of poetry to inspire young reluctant readers.
