We're coming to the end of National Poetry Month, but the Poetry Foundation has come up with a way to celebrate Chicago's poetic history year round with an impressive multimedia tour.

The online tour includes maps and landmarks and readings of poetry written by Chicago poets past and present, including Carl Sandburg, Gwendolyn Brooks, Li-Young Lee, Ana Castillo, Stuart Dybek and many more.

You can also download the tour on your mp3 player and take a guided walking tour through downtown and/or visit any of the other stops on the tour, such as the Green Mill, Newberry Library, Graceland Cemetery, Maxwell Street and more.
