Since 1968, the O.B. Hardison Poetry series has brought some of the best writers and speakers to the Folger stage. From traditional poetry readings to multimedia presentations to eclectic combinations of lecture, conversation, and performance, we are committed to expanding the contexts in which poetry is experienced.
Each reading is followed by a wine reception and book signing, offering further opportunities for audience members to enagage with the authors, their works, and DC's community of poetry lovers.
As a special feature of our anniversary season, a customizable 4-reading subscription is available for $50, in addition to a full-season subscription for $80.
