April, in addition to being tax season and schizophrenic with the weather, is National Poetry Month. Callanwolde Fine Arts Center is celebrating the art of spoken words Wed., APRIL 9, with a POETRY READING in the conservatory from award-winning poet Turner Cassity, and local poet and editor of Atlanta Review Dan Veach (right). Don't expect elitist, inaccessible poetry, though. Some of Veach's humorous, insightful poems are titled "In Honor of Roaches" and "Wear and Tear, the Poet to his Underwear." $3-$5. Callanwolde Fine Arts Center, 980 Briarcliff Road. 404-872-5338. www.callanwolde.org.
