Kingsley & Kate Tufts Poetry Awards 25th Anniversary

2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the Claremont Graduate University’s Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award, one of contemporary poetry’s most prestigious awards, given for poetry volumes published in the preceding year and created to both honor the poet and provide the resources that allow artists to continue working towards the pinnacle of their craft. In a celebration moderated by the Poetry Society of America’s Executive Director Alice Quinn, join us for an evening looking back at 25 years of this special prize along with readings by this year’s winners Vievee Francis and Phillip B. Williams. This year's celebration is in partnership with ALOUD and the Library Foundation of Los Angeles.
