Invitation to the Muse:
A Celebration of Partners in Poetry

Raises Funds to Support Poets House’s Diverse Programs for
Adults and Children


Poets House, the nation’s poetry library and literary center located in Lower Manhattan, presented an evening celebrating the art of fine dining and timeless poetry on Monday, February 27 with poets Mark Doty, Cathy Park Hong, Taylor Mali and Nicole Sealey. The night was hosted by Daniel Halpern, poet and president and publisher of famed HarperCollins’s imprint Ecco Press.


All proceeds support Poets House’s diverse programs for adults and children, which keeps programming free or low cost. The 70,000-volume Poets House library, which features one of the world’s most complete contemporary poetry collections, reading room, and an imaginative children’s room are free and open to the public.


This magical evening—a cosmic alignment of food, wine, conversation, and poetry—began at Poets House with effervescent toasts and continues at Danny Meyer's lauded North End Grill for a meal designed by Chef Eric Korsh and readings by acclaimed guest poets. Wine pairings by celebrated importer and member of the Poets House Board of Directors, Neal Rosenthal, add sensory stimulus to this tantalizing literary and culinary evening.


For almost thirty years, Poets House’s mission, programming, and goals have worked to build a place for poetry that welcomes every one. The library is filled daily. The Poets House Emerging Poets Fellowship provides deep support and community for important new voices from around the world. Poets House continues to make a place of learning, civil discourse and exchange that supports the transformative power of poetry as it changes lives and thinking, helping communities bend toward understanding.


As Poets House rounds the corner toward its 30th Anniversary, the depth of its commitment to social justice programs—like Poets House’s ten city initiative in libraries Poetic Voices of the Muslim World—are also timely, necessary and have intrinsic social value.


Poets House is a 70,000-volume poetry library and a national literary center that invites poets and the public to step into the living tradition of poetry. Poets House—through its poetry resources, literary events for adults and children, and exhibitions—documents the wealth and diversity of modern poetry and stimulates public dialogue on issues related to poetry in culture. Founded in 1985 by two-time Poet Laureate Stanley Kunitz and legendary arts administrator Elizabeth Kray, the library has created a home for all who read and write poetry. In 2009, Poets House moved into its permanent home, at 10 River Terrace in Battery Park City, on the banks of the Hudson River. Last year, 80,000 people visited Poets House, and millions more were introduced to Poets House via its new website and national partnerships. For more information about these events and Poets House in general, visit and join us on Facebook and Twitter.
