Special Member Events
Poets House is grateful to our Members for their support of our place for poetry and we are pleased to offer exciting and exclusive Members-only events throughout the year. Over the past several years, Special Members Events have included:
- A free screening of the film Bright Star preceded by a sneak preview of Poets House’s then-new space during our Grand Opening celebration;
- Legendary poet Gary Snyder reading from his work and in conversation with Jonathan Skinner, followed by a reception and book signing;
- An advance screening of the award-winning Korean film Poetry with an introduction and discussion by film critic Michael Atkinson, followed by a reception; and
- An unforgettable night of dreaming, reading and writing the “poetry of the night” at our annual Members’ Sleepover.
- Poets House Members share their voices at an open-mic style reading in the unique environment of the Poets House Showcase exhibition.
