ibiblio- April, such a momentous month!

In addition to the proverbial showers, April has been the host to momentous events, including the sinking of the Titanic on April 15, 1912. Inspired (presumably) by the example of the great ship, the United States government instituted the income tax in 1913.
Don't forget Earth Day (April 22), which also happens to be National Jellybean Day. The accolades just pile up for April: Alcohol Awareness month; International Guitar month; National Welding month; National Poetry month; STD Awareness month; and most significantly, National Anxiety month. ibiblio's extensive resources are food for what ails ya.

Internet Poetry 
The Internet Poetry Archive makes available selected poems from a number of contemporary poets. The goal of the project is to make poetry accessible to new audiences and to give teachers and students of poetry new ways of presenting and studying these poets and their texts. The archive includes the work of living poets from around the world, including Philip Levine and Nobel Prize winners Seamus Heaney and Czeslaw Milosz. The archive entry for each poet comprises audio clips of the poet reading several poems, the poet's comments on the works, a photograph of the poet, a critical biography and a short bibliography. Poems are presented in their original languages, as well as in English translation.

Doc Watson

The legendary Doc Watson
Guitar player extraordinaire Doc Watson is a legendary performer who blends his traditional Appalachian folk music roots with blues, country, gospel, and bluegrass to create his unique style and expansive repertoire. Blind from infancy, Doc has spent his lifetime making music and is considered by fans everywhere one of the world's most accomplished flat-pickers. Doc was born Arthel L. Watson in Deep Gap , NC (Watauga County) on March 23 , 1923 into a family with a rich musical tradition. Doc has recorded dozens of albums in his long career and, although he stopped performing briefly after his son Merle died in a tractor accident in 1985, he does continue to tour in the winter and play festivals in the summertime. For the last fifteen years, Doc has hosted the yearly Merle Watson Memorial Festival in Wilkesboro, NC on the last weekend of April, this year from April 24-27.
