In support of efforts to diminish the spread of COVID-19, Poets House is postponing all public programs until further notice.
Each year, Poets House presents a vast range of poetry talks, panels, readings, seminars, performances, and classes that give audiences the chance to experience some of the leading international voices of the day.
Unless otherwise indicated, all events take place at Poets House at 10 River Terrace. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, and tickets are available at the door.
