Free Book from Sarabande!

I was looking up Gabriel Fried’s book of poems, Making the New Lamb Take (Sarabande Books, 2007) (he’s coming to read at Amherst College on April 22), and stumbled on this tidbit from Sarabande Books’ blog:

April is National Poetry Month, and Sarabande is celebrating by offering a free book for sharing your favorite poem with others. Here’s what you’ll need to do:

1. Chalk two or more lines of your favorite poem on the sidewalk (or anywhere others can read it) during the month of April.

2. Take a picture.

3. Browse through the Sarabande catalog and select a book you’d like to read.

4. Send the photo no later than April 30, along with your book selection, to or mail it to:

Chalk It Up!
Sarabande Books
2234 Dundee Road, Suite 200
Louisville, KY 40205

5. Sarabande will mail you the book of your choice, free of charge!
