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.
Friday, December 14, 11:00am–7:00pm — All Welcome
Saturday, December 15, 11:00am–4:00pm — Last Chance!

This year's panel discussion between poets and librarians focuses on young adult services—the books, the programs, and the methods that work—and the revolutionary impact the discovery of poetry can have.
An intensive hands-on seminar for librarians, featuring small group sessions, workshops and panel discussions on collection development, building an audience, programming, community outreach, and more.
Join us for our annual tribute to the art and the city we love—and a special celebration in honor of Poets House's fifteenth year of service to the public. Poets Billy Collins, Galway Kinnell, Tracie Morris and Naomi Shihab Nye will read their poems, as well as poems by Hart Crane, Marianne Moore and Walt Whitman. The walk includes poetry readings on the bridge and at the Fulton Ferry Landing and concludes with a buffet supper.
