Refreshing your poetry reading list for winter? Exchange your well-read collections for someone else’s at our pop-up poetry book swap, co-presented by the Academy of American Poets and Housing Works Bookstore Café.

Trade your old faves one-to-one—the more you bring, the more you can replace. And all remaining books will be donated to Housing Works Bookstore Café, where sales will support its mission to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS in New York City.

As an added bonus, the Academy of American Poets will be contributing some brand-new titles, including prize-winning collections. So, trade in or trade up, and join us for a poetry lover’s dreamy fall evening.

(A suggested donation of $5 for participants will support Housing Works)
