Happy New Year


Dear Poetry Society of America Friend,

Happy New Year from Walt Whitman and the rest of the Poetry Society gang!

We hope you have big plans for 2012.

As the New Year begins, the Poetry Society embarks on our 102nd year of bringing you poetry programming. We hope you will show your support for poetry with a year-end tax-deductible gift. 

In the spirit of the season, we're excited to be able to thank those friends who give $50 or more with a copy of Jonathan Williams's A Palpable Elysium: Portraits of Genius and Solitude (David R. Godine Publisher).

This gorgeous book, from the self-described Black Mountain "Poet, Essayist, Publisher, Hiker, Bourgeoisophobe, and Dotty Anecdotist" who is also one of the Poetry Society's favorite photographers, presents a visually stunning inventory of extraordinary writers, composers, musicians, and geniuses of Outsider Art.

Please donate today, and we'll send this book to you or a friend, along with our sincere gratitude for being a part of the Poetry Society of America.
