Poets House will be celebrating 25 years of its annual Poets House Showcase beginning on June 22, 2017.
Poets House celebrates a quarter-century of history-making with its annual Poets House Showcase. The only event of its kind, the Showcase is a free exhibit featuring over 3,500 books of poetry published in the preceding 18 months. For 25 years, more than 7500 commercial, university, and independent presses and individuals have contributed poetic texts and ephemera annually, stitching together the diverse and inclusive tapestry of today’s contemporary poetry. Join us for a seven-week celebration including Showcase readings with acclaimed poets.
