On Saturday, February 18, 2017, the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (Rose Library) welcomes guest poet Juan Felipe Herrera for one special night. Herrera is the current and first Hispanic US Poet Laureate (2015 – present) and recipient of the National Book Critic’s award. We also pleased to announce that Kevin Young and Kate Tuttle will serve as this year’s Chief Revelers.

Since the first Twelfth Night Revel was held 16 years ago, this signature event of Rose Library at Emory has become an unforgettable way to celebrate the spirit of poetry. Join us for a wonderful meal, great company, poems read aloud by special guests, and a chance to mingle with the US Poet Laureate. 

Sign up to be a Patron or purchase your tickets to the event. Please also consider extending this unique experience to an Emory student by sponsoring a ticket for one to attend.

We look forward to a sparkling evening of poetry, music, and revelry with you on February 18, 2017.
