Join us for the opening of this exhibition, drawn from the Raymond Danowski Poetry Library at Emory University, featuring holiday cards, valentines, birthday greetings, rare booklets, and more from some of the last century’s most beloved poets, including Langston Hughes, Alice Notley, Ted Berrigan, Seamus Heaney, and Sylvia Plath. Ranging from intimate exchanges and collaborative artworks to annual original compositions, the pieces in the show offer a fascinating look at the ties of love and friendship behind literary success, as well as at shifting styles and conventions in correspondence.

Exhibition on view through March 21, 2015. Curated by Kevin Young and Lisa Chinn
