Cave Canem Poets


Alphabet City


40 W North Ave.
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15212


City of Asylum


Enjoy an evening of poetry with acclaimed poets and 2019 Cave Canem faculty members Cornelius Eady, Ruth Ellen Kocher and Matthew Shenoda!

One of Pittsburgh’s most anticipated poetry events returns! Each June since 2010, City of Asylum has presented the poets of Cave Canem. The poets and their readings are unique in their appeal to both devoted and casual poetry audiences. These are rousing performances that speak to issues of the day with beauty and excitement. Poets have included future Poet Laureates, National Book Award winners, MacArthur “Genius” award winners, and Pulitzer Prize winners. 

This year’s annual reading will continue the tradition with acclaimed poets Cornelius Eady, Ruth Ellen Kocher and Matthew Shenoda. A book signing with the poets will follow the reading.
