On Friday, February 22, 2019, we are pleased to welcome historic inaugural poet Richard Blanco to Emory for the 19th Annual Twelfth Night Revel. Richard Blanco was President Barack Obama’s second inaugural poet, and was the youngest, first Latino, immigrant, and gay person to serve in that role. He has published three award-winning collections of poetry and his fourth, How To Love a Country, will be available in March 2019.

We are also excited to announce that Anne and Bill Newton will serve as this year’s Chief Revelers.

The evening will begin with cocktails in the Rose Library (Robert W. Woodruff Library, 10th Floor) followed by dinner in the Schatten Gallery where you will have a unique opportunity to mingle with our guest poet and other guests amidst our collections.

Click here to become a Patron sponsor or to purchase tickets. Please also consider extending this unique experience to an Emory student by sponsoring a ticket for one to attend.

We look forward to an evening of poetry, music, and revelry with you on February 22, 2019.
