Sweet Poetry

Sweet Poetry

Any poem, any language! The LRC celebrates National Poetry Month. Sweet Poetry is an evening event in April named for enjoying tasty treats while sharing poems in any language. Celebrate your language and culture by reading/signing a poem written by your favorite poet!

Join us on Wednesday, April 17, 2024 from 5-7 pm in the Klarman Hall Atrium. During the event, Cornell community members are invited to watch live poetry recitations in multiple languages. The event booklet, available digitally, includes transcriptions of each poem along with approximate English translations.

We look forward to an amazing lineup of poetry readings this April and are excited to celebrate National Poetry Month together!
