The Poetry Buffet is a monthly reading series curated by Gina Ferrara which, prior to the Covid pandemic, was held the first Saturday of every month at the historic Latter Library in New Orleans. Since its inception in 2007 the series has featured poets of local legend and national and international renown. The series now runs at the same time online
This event features readers from the series with a special tribute to Lee Meitzen Grue, our godmother of the New Orleans poetry scene, who passed away just as NOPF began this year, and will be sorely missed.
