One Week 'til Mardi Gras!
Join us on Tuesday, February 16 at 7PM for a FREE celebration of the New Haven Free Public Library's role as a vital source of connection in our community.

Celebrate Black Poetry!

Mardi Gras will feature a lively conversation with some of the nation's leading poets – Toi Derricotte, Cornelius Eady, and Reginald Dwayne Betts. 



  • Appearances by local luminaries & literati

  • A musical performance by Thabisa
  • A presentation of the Noah Webster Award to Elsie B. Chapman
  • And a special announcement about the campaign for the new Stetson Library on Dixwell Avenue

Tune in to the Library's Facebook or YouTube pages Tuesday, February 16 at 7PM to watch live!
