The City of Charlottetown will participate in the Canada-wide Poetry City initiative during April’s monthly Council meeting on Monday, April 9 in celebration of National Poetry Month.

Poetry City is an annual celebration of poetry facilitated by mayors and city councils all across Canada. The event was created to bring poetry into public spaces in the months of March or April. It is designed to recognize the valuable contribution poets and writers make to cultural life in the community.

The Poetry City challenge aligns with UNESCO World Poetry Day on March 21 and National Poetry Month in April.

In Charlottetown, PEI Poet Laureate Deirdre Kessler will read a poem entitled, "Sunday NBA game, Cleveland vs. San Antonio" at the City Council meeting prior to it starting at 7 pm.

Deirdre Kessler is author of more than two-dozen books of poetry, children's novels and picture books, memoir, and nonfiction. She is the Island’s sixth Poet Laureate and was appointed to a three-year term from 2016–2018.
