Library Symposium at Poets House

An afternoon spent in silence? A-Z? The cosmic order of Borges' library of the imagination? Whatever the duration, extent, or dimensions of your perfect library, this day-long symposium will delight and inform as it winds through the many roles libraries take on in the community of readers and in the imagination, as collection, as shared intellectual and physical space, and as the symbol of shared knowledge.

Guests include: Nancy Kuhl, Shannon Mattern, Kevin Young, Catharine Barnett, Tyehimba Jess, Monica Youn, Ander Monson, Susan Howe. Find full program on:….

$10, $7 for students and seniors, free to Poets House members.
