Quote of the Day/Week-Rita Dove

Today, we continue to celebrate National Poetry Month, with a quip from poet and University of Virginia professor Rita Dove, whose collection "On the Bus with Rosa Parks" (1999) is one of my personal favorites.

Dove, 59, was poet laureate fro 1993-95; here is her quote:

"Going to the library was the one place we got to go without asking for permission. And they let us choose what we wanted to read. It was a feeling of having a book be mine entirely."
