Fun in May: Book Spine Poetry

Have you heard of “book spine poetry?" It’s a form of poetry that you don’t write from scratch; instead, you create it by arranging book titles to make a poem. During the month of May we will be posting Book Spine Poetry from time to time.  These "poems" will be composed of books from our own collection in the Library and Learning Resource Center. As a bonus, we will include links to the books in our online catalog and give a brief—Twitter size—review of each book.  

Our first Book Spine Poem is:

"Something I Ate"

Feasting on Asphalt: The River Run by Alton Brown; 
call number: 641.5 B877f
Alton Brown. A motorcycle. The Mississippi River. Borscht. Ribs. Pecan Pie. Any questions? 

Eating as I Go: Scenes from America and Abroad by Doris Friedensohn;

Friedensohn’s book is part memoir, part travelogue, and all about experiences with food in the United States and around the world.
