In celebration of both National Library Week and National Poetry Month, the Friends of the Metuchen Public Library presents A Visit with Poet/Author Mel Glenn on Sunday, April 10 at 2 PM at the Library.  Mr. Glenn is the author of over ten books for young adults, including Class Dismissed!, Who Killed Mr. Chippendale?, and Jump Ball. Mel Glenn began writing the novel-in-verse long before it became a popular format for Young Adult fiction. His works have won many awards including the Christopher Award and the Golden Kiter Award, and the American Library Association has recognized many of Glenn's titles as Best Books for Young Adults.

For over thirty years, Mel Glenn taught English Literature and Writing at Abraham Lincoln High School in Brooklyn.  A Visit with the Poet/Author will feature Glenn's story of his transition from teacher to writer, readings from his books, and ideas and inspirations for writing poetry. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Refreshments will be served. The program is free and open to adults, teens and tweens.
