April is National Poetry Month, and HPL is celebrating in a big way. We’re teaming up with the City of Hartford Marketing, Events, and Cultural Affairs office to host a citywide multicultural poetry festival! Join us for 10 events over 2 weeks at our branches throughout the city and we enjoy performances and workshops held by local poets. Then, the festival culminates with a grand finale at our Downtown Library, a day-long poetry reading by participants in more than 16 languages!

See below for dates and locations. For more information, contact 860-695-6300.
