Events :: Poetry Foundation Library

Maya Marshall poet head shot Poetry Foundation Library

You don’t need to live in New York to take advantage of the many free events offered by the Poetry Foundation Library. Their calendar is peppered with community activities that include in-person with a virtual option as well as virtual-only events. Events like a Book Club with small group discussion online, moderated by library staff, with all participants residing in the U.S. offered a complimentary copy of the book; Forms & Features, which is billed as “part discussion, part poetry workshop,” online monthly series; and numerous Readings and Lectures, Screenings, and Performances.

The two upcoming Book Clubs are All the Blood Involved in Love by Maya Marshall [pictured] on September 30 and Somebody Else Sold the World by Adrian Matejka on October 21. Participants are welcome to sign up for one but not both club events. Closed captioning is available via Google Meet and an ASL interpreter will be provided upon request.
