Take a walk through historic downtown Lewisburg and Bucknell University and experience poetry along the way. Visitors to the Poetry Path will have the chance to read and hear recordings of poems by living poets, recited in the poets' own voices. Each of the ten markers along the path features a poem chosen for its thematic resonance with a culturally significant Lewisburg locale.
Opened in August 2012, the Poetry Path is a project of the Stadler Center for Poetry & Literary Arts at Bucknell University. In keeping with the Stadler Center's mission, the Poetry Path seeks to make contemporary poetry a part of people's everyday lives. An entirely new selection of poems is launched every year or two.
The Poetry Path is wheel-chair accessible and open year-round. For information on touring the path or scheduling a formal tour with a Stadler Center staff member, please visit Events and Tours. We are happy to staff tours for individuals or groups of any size (including school field trips and university classes).
Bucknell University and the town of Lewisburg are located in the scenic Susquehanna Valley on the banks of the Susquehanna River, approximately three hours by car from New York, Philadelphia, and the Baltimore/Washington DC area. For information on planning a trip to Lewisburg, including things to do in the area, dining, and accommodations, please visit http://www.lewisburgpa.com/.
We look forward to welcoming you.
Support and funding for the Poetry Path comes from the Stadler Center for Poetry & Literary Arts and the Presidential Arts Initiative.
