On Friday, February 20, 2015, we are pleased to welcome guest poet Carol Ann Duffy to Emory for the 15th Annual Twelfth Night Revel. One of Britain’s best known and most admired poets, Duffy – whose papers are housed in MARBL – is the first woman, first openly LGBT, and first Scot to be appointed as United Kingdom Poet Laureate. Also, Emory Professor Emeritus Don Saliers and his daughter Elizabeth will serve as this year’s Chief Revelers in recognition of their significant contributions to MARBL, Emory University, and the scholarly world. It is an opportunity not to be missed.

Since the first Twelfth Night Revel was held 14 years ago, this signature event of the Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library at Emory has become an unforgettable way to celebrate the spirit of poetry. We hope you will join us for a wonderful meal, convivial music and company, and poems read aloud by special guests.

It’s an evening you will long remember – and all proceeds benefit one of Atlanta’s cultural treasures, Emory’s world-renowned Manuscripts, Archives, and Rare Book Library. Past revels have been memorable occasions of magic and merriment.
