Poets House Showcase
The only event of its kind, the annual Poets House Showcase is a free exhibit featuring all of the new poetry books and poetry-related texts published in the United States in a single year (volumes by individual authors, anthologies, chapbooks, biographies, critical studies, essay collections, CDs, DVDs, etc.) from over 650 commercial, university and independent presses. The Poets House Showcase is a diverse and inclusive exhibition in which books from micro-presses receive the same care and attention as major publishers.
Opening on Thursday, June 25th, the 2015 Showcase was on view through Saturday, August 8, 2015. More than 3,000 items were in the 2015 exhibition.
The Poets House Showcase is made possible by longtime Poets House supporter Deborah Saltonstall Pease (1943-2014) – an original supporter of The Paris Review – who was passionate about the Showcase because it reflects the range, diversity and inventiveness of current poetry publishing.
