This summer the Academy of American Poets continues its tradition of offering poetry readings featuring a diverse lineup of poets sharing their latest work at the historic New York Public Library. Our readings are made possible in part by funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts.
