Katonah Poetry Series (KPS) is celebrating its fiftieth year of consistently hosting acclaimed contemporary poets in the intimate setting of Katonah Village Library’s Garden Room. A collision of notable talents will take place on May 13, when KPS hosts a reading and panel discussion with a lineup that consists of established American poets who have read for the Series in the past. The participating poets include two-time US Poet Laureate and longtime KPS advisor Billy Collins, National Book Award winner Mark Doty, New York State Poet Laureate Marie Howe (2012-14) and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Vijay Seshadri. Collins will lead a panel discussion, during which the poets will explore connections and trends in contemporary poetry as well as discuss where the art-form may progress to next. The event will take place at The Harvey School’s Walker Center for the Arts. For more info, visit: katonahpoetry.com.
