Six Extraordinary Poets Together on One Night in Nevada City

Nationally Known Poets Return to Read in Nevada City to Benefit the Community of Writers

This year we are pleased to welcome six extraordinary poets, including two Pulitzer-Prize winners and a 2018 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Last year’s Benefit Poetry Reading was such a success that we have decided  to once again return to the Miners Foundry in Nevada City, California.
