On October 21, 2010, the new U.S. Poet Laureate W.S. Merwin visited with public librarians at Poets House in a free program in which he spoke about his commitment to the environment and the importance of introducing poetry to children, among other subjects.
Aimee Kelley introduces and reads an anthology-derived cento as part of Love in the Showcase: A Reading Celebrating Isn't It Romantic: 100 Love Poems by Younger American Poets (Brett Fletcher Lauer and Aimee Kelley, editors).
Join us for a weekend immersed in the rich world of poetry!
In conjunction with the celebration of Poets House's 25th Anniversary, we are hosting a Poetry in The Branches National Institute Reunion, inviting past attendees to the National Institute to return to share their experiences and refresh their skills, inspiring them to move forward.
