Branching Out: Poetry for the 21st Century

Branching Out logo

Beginning in April 2005, public libraries in New Orleans, Fresno, Kansas City (MO), Milwaukee and Houston will host the first ten programs in a new two-year initiative, Branching Out: Poetry for the 21st Century, a joint project with the Poetry Society of America. Branching Out brings the outreach programs of both organizations together— while PSA’s Poetry In Motion™ placards engage, inform, and delight the public, our prize-winning Poetry in The Branches program model provides community oriented services and expert librarian training to each city.

A joint initiative with the Poetry Society of America, Branching Out: Poetry for the 21st Century is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
