Celebrating John Ashbery

John Ashbery's work bends and breaks contemporary structure in search of the reality that exists behind truth, the realities that inform the nature of all things. Folger Poetry celebrates Ashbery's long history in poetry with readings of his work by poets Ann Lauterbach, Ron Padgett, James Tate, and Dara Weir, ending with a reading by Ashbery himself. Co-sponsored with The Poetry Society of America.

Readings include a moderated conversation, light-fare reception, and book sale and signing. Call 202.544.7077 for more information. Tickets are $12.00.
