Katonah Poetry Series
In 1967 the Katonah Village Library and the New York State Poets and Writers program began sponsoring three poetry readings each year, playing host to dozens of poets and many hundreds of poetry aficionados. Under the direction of poet Robert Phillips from 1967 to 1991, and under Billy Collins since then, the Poetry Series has attracted a lot of major contemporary poets. As Billy Collins said at the beginning of his tenure as Poet-in-Residence, "If you sat on the steps of the Katonah Library for the past 23 years without moving, nearly every notable American poet would walk by you."
Book Discussion Group
The Library's Book Discussion Group has been meeting every three weeks since 1983. The group meets on Wednesday evenings at 8 PM and talks informally about plot, character, motivation, language, and anything else that comes to mind for about an hour before checking out the author's biographical facts and what critics have had to say about the book under discussion.
