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 reading poems aloud in any language. Celebrate your language and culture by sharing 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 readings 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!

Want to share your favorite poem? Please complete the participation form by March 25. Contact Hilary Yarger at hy626@cornell.edu if you have any questions.
