A Funny Beach Read If Ever…

I’ve always appreciated the way Joan Rivers could turn her personal tragedies around by finding a sliver of humor in whatever came her way. It seems like her daughter Melissa has that same gift. Melissa adds her own witty comments to her Mom’s to make her new book, The Book of Joan: Tales of Mirth, Mischief, and Manipulation by Melissa Rivers a really funny book. Rather than share some of my favorite lines/stories, I’ll let you find your own given that we all don’t laugh at the same things. Trust me, you’ll find plenty.

April is National Poetry Month

Since its first observance in 1996, National Poetry Month has paid honor to the legacy and ongoing achievement of American poets and the place of poetry in our culture. Ohio is fortunate that there are many talented poets who call or who have called Ohio their home.(http://www.ohioana.org/features/lists/poetslist.pdf)
 
Rocky River Public Library subscribes to the Muse, the quarterly journal of “The Lit: Cleveland’s Literary Center” (http://www.the-lit.org/). This literary organization (formerly called “The Poets’ and Writers’ League of Greater Cleveland”) promotes writers and their work in northeast Ohio and invites aspiring poets and others to submit their works for possible publication. Anybody interested?
