Poets House Grand Re-opening Expansion Celebration with Stanley Kunitz

So much has changed–—more space for books in a dedicated reading room, new exhibit space and offices across the hall, even a children's room launching this April–—but our commitment to providing an accessible, open place for poetry remains the same. Poets House has grown larger at our 72 Spring Street location. Please join Stanley Kunitz and other good friends for food, drink, and graceful toasts to this vibrant New York Institution.

Library hours resume Nov. 13, Tues.–Fri. 11–7 & Sat. 11–4. Please call for holiday closings, (212) 431-7920.
