The Poetry Path
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. Ten markers along the Path feature poems that pay tribute to historic and culturally significant Lewisburg locales.
Opened in August 2012, the Poetry Path is a project of the Stadler Center for Poetry 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.
The Poetry Path is handicapped accessible and open year-round. To view upcoming events connected with the Poetry Path, please click on Events.

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.
