US Poet Laureate Ada Limón at Cuyahoga Valley National Park (Registration Deadline July 10)

Updated: 2 days ago

“National parks from coast to coast will host special events this year with Ada Limón, the nation’s 24th Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry. In partnership with the Library of Congress and the Poetry Society of America, Limón’s 'You Are Here: Poetry in Parks' initiative will feature site-specific poetry installations in seven national parks. 

In each of the seven parks, “You Are Here: Poetry in Parks” installations will transform picnic tables into works of public art featuring an American poem with a meaningful connection to the park. While in the parks to unveil the picnic tables, Limón will also engage with local youth, tribes and/or community groups.”

Ada Limon will visit Cuyahoga Valley National Park July 12 at 6pm to unveil a picnic table featuring "The Valley" by Jean Valentine at the Ledges Shelter. Lit Youngstown is organizing a ride share from Youngstown to CVNP for the event. The group will begin gathering at 4pm in the parking lot of St. John’s (323 Wick Avenue) for departure at 4:30pm.
