Showcase Opening Reception: Cornelius Eady & Myra Shapiro

April 6 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Please join us for a  celebratory reception hosted by Cornelius Eady and Myra Shapiro. Eady will read from his chapbook, 706 Union Ave: Memphis Session (Kattywompus Press, 2020), and Shapiro will read from her book, When the World Walks Toward You (Kelsay Books, 2021). This event is presented with generous support from the Battery Park City Authority.

The 28th Poets House Showcase exhibit—the first since the pandemic and major renovations—features books published in 2020 and 2021. The exhibition will be on view from April 6–May 31, during regular library hours, and will be accompanied by readings throughout April and May.

The only event of its kind, the Poets House Showcase is an admission-free exhibit featuring thousands of books of poetry published by hundreds of presses. Discover a panoramic view of nationwide poetic activity! After the Showcase concludes, materials become a part of the Poets House library, one of the largest and most comprehensive poetry libraries in North America.
