The biennial Princeton Poetry Festival, organized by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon, returns in-person with a full day of readings, panel discussions and a lecture featuring poets Reginald Dwayne Betts, Victoria Chang, Laura Kasischke, and Patricia Smith from the U.S.; Sasha Dugdale and Daljit Nagra from the U.K.; Javier Zamora from El Salvador; and Polina Barskova of Russia.

Free and open to the public; tickets required. Each ticket for each person attending must be reserved through a separate online transaction (however one person can submit multiple transactions on behalf of different attendees). All guests are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, to wear a mask when indoors, and to show proof of vaccination and a photo ID at the door (Princeton students, faculty and staff only need to show their PU ID card.); currently children under 12 are not permitted in campus buildings as they are not currently able to be vaccinated. Tickets required through McCarter Box Office at mccarter.org/poetry-festival.

Assistive listening devices will be available upon request in the Berlind Theatre.
Guests in need of access accommodations are invited to contact the Lewis Center at least one week in advance at LewisCenter@princeton.edu.
