Every April, on Poem in Your Pocket Day, people celebrate by selecting a poem, carrying it with them, and sharing it with others throughout the day at schools, bookstores, libraries, parks, workplaces, and on social media using the hashtag #pocketpoem.

Come by the Penn Book Center any time on April 26th and pick a free poem from our outdoor display to carry around with you, read, memorize, share and enjoy to celebrate Poem in Your Pocket day! There will be over a hundred poems chosen by our booksellers - and by you! - all hanging outside and ready to go in your pocket.
