Come to the library to learn the four steps to create Book Spine Poetry: Step 1: Browse many, many book spines and choose one or two that spark your interest or speak to your heart. Step 2: Find other book spines that complement your first choice. Do not edit yet. Grab any spines that you think may work! Stop when you have 6-8 books. Step 3: Start playing with combinations of spines, swapping and changing the order. Do not settle with your first try! Try putting your poem together like a puzzle and explore how changing the order changes the meaning of your poem. Step 4: Read your poem aloud to yourself and to a partner. When it sounds right, snap a photo of your completed poem.
