Gathering MaximeFinette's thoughts
Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason. I first found out about the National Poetry Library whilst studying at Library School; a fellow student told me about the library when they found out I dabbled in poetry. Could such a library really exist! I followed the net and ball carpet through Royal Festival Hall to Level 5, became a member, and would pop in on my way home from work (as a cataloguer at other libraries) to look at the magazines and decide which ones to send my poems to. I never imagined I’d get the chance to work here until a cataloguing job came up. Eleven years later I’m still here doing a bit of everything. An early memory of using the library is reading a poem in an anthology by Alden Nowlan, wanting more, and lo and behold there on the shelves were his books from Canada.

The Best Cities in the World for Book Lovers
We see lots of beautiful literary pictures on the web every day. Book sculptures, book fountains, beautiful old libraries, or cozy bookshops. The thing is these literary places exist not only on photos. They are real. You can see them. And sometimes they are surprisingly close to major attractions of the city you are going to visit quite soon. Photo by Nicolas Zonvi
