Celebrate National Poetry Month
“Georgia libraries offers the best of all worlds, the books we love and the online information we need. We in Georgia can be especially glad of GALILEO…” says Dan Veach, winner of the Georgia Author of the Year Award for Poetry for 2013. In celebration of National Poetry Month, GALILEO presents a reading of Dan’s poem “Age of Information” from Elephant Water read by the author. Click on the link to the video below and feel free to share it.
We hope Dan’s reading is an inspiration to the poet in everyone to write, read, share, and showcase poetry in April and all year long. In libraries and GALILEO, Georgia citizens and students will find poems, resources for explication and criticism, and educational information to help teachers instill a love of poetry to their classes.

Celebrate University Press Week
This week we celebrate University Press Week, which highlights the contributions of university presses to culture, academia, and society. It was established in June of 1978 when U.S. President Jimmy Carter proclaimed “University Press Week” to mark the centennial of university press publishing in the United States “in recognition of the impact, both here and abroad, of American university presses on culture and scholarship.”
The University of Georgia Press is joining 36 other presses to provide a University Press Week blog tour highlighting the value of university presses and the contributions they make to scholarship and our society. To find the websites and publications of university presses in your area, see the membership list of the Association of American University Presses or this map of university presses.
