Poem in Your Pocket Day
Part 2 U School Students Crafting A Comeback
Join U School's 2nd Annual Poem in Pocket Day Celebration.
On Thursday, April 21st, the U School will celebrate our 2nd annual Poem in Your Pocket day. At the U School We Love. We Dream We Do. Our students are given real world opportunities to apply knowledge and fulfill their greatest potential.
Last year during National Poetry Month, we celebrated our first School Wide Poem in Your Pocket event. This year's will be bigger and better. Students will select and read poems from established poets and their own published poems; carry and share poems from their pockets and parade our larger than life performance puppets on and near Temple University's campus.
Poem in Your Pocket Day was originally initiated in 2002 by the Office of the Mayor, in partnership with the New York City Departments of Cultural Affairs and Education, as part of the city’s National Poetry Month celebration. In 2008, the Academy of American Poets took the initiative national, encouraging individuals around the country to join in and channel their inner bard.
