Poets House

Poets House is a national 60,000-volume poetry library, creative workspace, and literary center that invites poets and the public to step into the living tradition of poetry. Poets House — through its poetry resources, literary events for adults and children, and archival and poetry-related visual art exhibitions — documents the wealth and diversity of modern poetry and stimulates public dialogue on issues related to poetry in culture. Founded in 1985 by two-time Poet Laureate Stanley Kunitz and legendary arts administrator Elizabeth Kray, the library has created a home for all who read and write poetry. In 2009, Poets House moved into its permanent home, at 10 River Terrace in Battery Park City, on the banks of the Hudson River. For more information about these events and Poets House in general, visit the site and join on Facebook and Twitter.
