National Poetry Month / Open Mic

In partnership with Villanova University’s English department, Falvey Memorial Library hosts an annual Open Mic Poetry Reading. The reading also serves as a launch party for the year’s issue of Arthology, one of the University’s student-produced art and literary magazine. 

In addition to Arthology contributors, the reading features contestants for the Senior Class Poet award, given by the English department every spring.

The reading, which is free and open to the public, is timed to coincide with National Poetry Month, celebrated across the country every April. Copies of Arthology are available at the event.
