Donna Pucciani’s poem, “Hunger,” has been posted in the window of a vacant storefront on the corner of St. Johns and Laurel venues in Highland Park, Illinois, as part of a project for National Poetry Month sponsored by Highland Park Poetry under the direction of Jennifer Dotson.
Pucciani’s poems are also featured this month in several Chicago area libraries. “Two Squirrels” is displayed at public libraries in Glenview, Winnetka and Highland Park as part of a celebration of National Poetry Month, on the theme of “Animals.” Another poem, “Cardinal Virtues,” is part of library displays in Highland Park, Wilmette, and Aurora. The project was directed by Sheila Kirscher of the Illinois State Poetry Society as well as the officers of the organization. Both poems are featured in Pucciani’s fifth and most recent collection of poems, Hanging Like Hope on the Equinox (Virtual Artists Collective 2014). “Cardinal Virtues” first appeared in Front Range Review.
