Poetry Magazine at 100: An Anniversary Reading

Apr 8, 2013

Poetry magazine celebrates its centenary with contemporary poets Frank Bidart, Thomas Sayers Ellis, Atsuro Riley, and Charles Wright reading from The Open Door: One Hundred Poems, One Hundred Years, a commemorative anthology compiled by Don Share and Christian Wiman, the magazine's editors. "Every poem in this book is situated somewhere on this spectrum between life and learning," writes Wiman. "Between linguistic powers honed to surgical precisions and the messy living reality out of which all language, if it would stay alive, must be rooted."

92Y needs your help

Many of you have asked how you can help 92Y as we face tremendous financial losses due to COVID-19. You can help sustain our beloved institution and support the creation of new, online programming that will bring comfort and inspiration to our community. Thank you.
