A Home for Poetry in Chicago

When Harriet Monroe founded Poetry magazine in 1912, she wrote that her publication was "a modest effort to give to poetry her own place." Now, nearly one hundred years later, poetry quite literally has that place. Opened to the public in June 2011, our building houses a public garden, a 30,000-volume library, an exhibition gallery, the Poetry Foundation's programming offices—including the offices of Poetry magazine—and provides new space for the Foundation’s extensive roster of public programs and events
