Cave Canem Faculty Readings
June 16, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
With the health, well-being, and comfort of all as our top priorities, City of Asylum requires that our staff, artists, and all those attending an event be fully vaccinated. Please click here to learn more about our Covid 19 policies.
Each June since 2010, City of Asylum has been home to Cave Canem’s annual reading to coincide with the week-long Cave Canem Retreat, their long-standing flagship program. This year we are thrilled to welcome Cave Canem back in person to read and celebrate, featuring an evening of poetry with 2022 retreat faculty francine j. harris, Evie Shockley, and Frank X. Walker.
The poets and their readings are unique in their appeal to both devoted and casual poetry audiences. These are rousing performances that speak to issues of the day with emotion, with beauty, and with calls to action. Poets have included future Poet Laureates, National Book Award winners, MacArthur “Genius” award winners, and Pulitzer Prize winners.
About your visit:
We invite you to dine at the in-house restaurant 40 North before, during, or after the reading. Please visit Open Table or call 412-435-111 to make a reservation.
