The 2024 Kenneth A. Lohf Poetry Reading: Claudia Rankine

March 28 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Join us in J. Pierpont Morgan’s historic library for an evening featuring renowned poet, playwright, and essayist Claudia Rankine. A fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and former Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets, Rankine is the author and editor of many poetry collections, including the New York Times best-selling Citizen: An American Lyric, which uses poetry and other genres of writing and imagery to explore what it means to be an American citizen in a “post-racial” society. Citizen was the winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry, the NAACP Image Award, the PEN Open Book Award, Britain’s Forward Prize for Best Poetry Collection, and earned Rankine the Bobbitt National Prize for Poetry from the Library of Congress. Rankine’s recent publications include Just Us: An American Conversation and her play The White Card. She is the recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Lannan Foundation, and the MacArthur Foundation, and lives and teaches in New York.

The event will take place in J. Pierpont Morgan’s Library, followed by a reception in the Rotunda.
