On Friday, February 16, 2018, we are pleased to welcome current U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith to Emory for the 18th Annual Twelfth Night Revel. Smith has published three collections of poetry, winning the Pulitzer Prize for her
 2011 volume, Life on Mars. We are also thrilled to announce that Stuart and Mimi Rose will serve as this year’s Chief Revelers.

This year’s event hearkens back to the community-gathering format of the first Twelfth Night Revels. With dinner and readings progressing throughout Woodruff Library, you will have a unique opportunity to mingle with the US Poet Laureate and other guests amidst our collections.

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 16, 2018.
