Bookbinding is a venerable art form with multiple cultural and aesthetic expressions, from the straightforward and utilitarian to the luxuriously decorative. Starting December 15th and ending February 18th, come to the Poetry Center Library for an exhibit celebrating the art of bookbinding with diverse examples from the collection.

The Poetry Center shares the spoils of its artistic, poetic reach by bringing readings and lectures into Phoenix. Don't miss events held at the Phoenix Art Museum this Spring: a poetry reading by Fady Joudah on Feb 18th and a Lecture by artist Jen Bervin May 1st. 

 

January 31st at 10:00am is one of our Family Days! Family Days is a Saturday open house for youth from 0-13 and their families. Youth and parents are invited to play with language in this series of hour long creative writing workshops (from 10:00 am to 11:00 am) for four different age groups, then stick around for breakfast and an inviting musical performance.
