Poetry Reading Series

Co-sponsored by the Center for Interdisciplinary Teaching & Learning, College of General Studies, and the BU Center for the Humanities (BUCH), the Poetry Reading Series strives to make poetry a fundamental part of university and community life. By presenting the work of both renowned and emerging poets, the series attempts to broaden our vision of poetry’s concerns and effects. In the past, the series has featured readings by Jorie Graham, Thomas Sayers Ellis, Geoffrey Hill, Vona Groarke, Gjertrud Schnackenberg, Marilyn Hacker, David Ferry, and Linda Gregg, among others.

All readings are free and open to the public. Details on upcoming poetry reading series events will be added to this page and to the CGS calendar. Please direct any questions to Meg Tyler, mtyler@bu.edu, 617-358-4199.

Upcoming Events

In light of the University’s decision to shift to remote classes, all poetry readings scheduled for the spring semester will be postponed until the fall.
