Since 1968, the O.B. Hardison Poetry series at the Folger Shakespeare Library has welcomed acclaimed writers to Washington, D.C. From traditional poetry readings to eclectic combinations of lecture, conversation, and performance, the series is committed to expanding the contexts in which poetry is experienced.

Listen to Camille DungyTina Chang, and Beth Ann Fennelly read their work about motherhood.

The reading is followed by a wine reception and book signing, offering further opportunities for audience members to engage with the authors, their works, and D.C.’s community of poetry lovers.
