I wish it
were lunch time.

—James Schuyler
Poetry, November 2009

Join members of the Poetry staff for lunch and an informal discussion of the June issue of the magazine. Food and drink will be provided.

Due to overwhelming interest in the program, combined with limited seating capacity, we ask that those who've attended Lunch Poems in the past please refrain from registering this month to allow for newcomers to join. We are working to organize multiple sessions in the coming months to accommodate the ever-growing interest in this program. We appreciate your cooperation.

Attendance is limited to 30 participants—reserve your spot today!

You can view the June issue online.

    Current Exhibition
    Jan 12, 2017 – May 26, 2017

    This exhibition presents photographs and ephemera from the poet Jun Fujita (1888-1963). Fujita is an English-language tanka poet who published regularly in Poetry during the 1920s. The first Japanese-American photojournalist, he is responsible for the most famous photos of the Eastland disaster, the Chicago race riots of 1919, and the St. Valentine’s Day massacre, among others. This show will explore his lesser-known landscapes.
