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.
