Discover poetry! Join young readers and writers along with special guests for an afternoon of readings and fun. Bring a poem of your choice to share or find one at Poets House. This community reading is a great way to tune your ears to new poets and old friends.

Poem in Your Pocket Day is a program of the Office of the Mayor in partnership with the New York City Departments of Cultural Affairs and Education that is designed to showcase talented K-12 faculty and student poets, as well as to encourage New Yorkers to embrace literacy and poetry. This year, Lower Manhattan students will investigate the process and product of invention—how the world works and grows through creativity—designing and writing about their own ideas. Every year, Poets House partners with local schools to enhance their curricula with interactive poetry workshops. The resulting poems are collected in anthologies and presented to each student on Poem in Your Pocket Day at Poets House.

For kindergarten through grade 12
