Welcome to the Katonah Poetry Series

For over 45 years, the Katonah Poetry Series has hosted nationally and internationally acclaimed poets in the friendly and intimate setting of Katonah Village Library. Each reading includes a question and answer session and is followed by a reception and book signing.  Among the distinguished poets who have appeared over the years are six Poets Laureate of the United States and fifteen winners of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. Billy Collins, Poet Laureate of the United States 2001-2003, directed the series for many years and currently acts as an advisor.

Coming Soon in 2015…

March 22: George Bilgere

“Cheeky nephew of Billy Collins, brash blunt brother of Tony Hoagland, George Bilgere writes the poetry of frontal candor about desire, nostalgia, and sweet sad vanity.” —Mark Halliday

 

April 19: Jorie Graham

“One of the most intelligent poets in the language . . . [Graham] is like no one else, neither in her rhythms nor in her insistence on opening up, scrutinizing, and even reversing our experience of time and space.”
—Times Literary Supplement
