Each poet will focus their readings on identity, which is always an important topic but feels extraordinarily topical in these difficult times.
Through a bequest from Witter Bynner in 1972, The Witter Bynner Foundation for Poetry perpetuates the art of poetry. The foundation promotes poetry in American culture and encourages grant proposals that expand awareness of the positive effects of poetry on society.
