Native American Poetry Collection
The Beinecke Library has acquired a collection of more than 325 books and chapbooks of poetry by modern and contemporary Native American poets. This extensive collection includes the work of well established poets such as Joy Harjo and Simon Ortiz, as well as work by less well-known writers.
The books come to the Beinecke from the personal library of Abenaki poet Joseph Bruchac, whose literary archive is also in the library’s collections.
The exhibition gallery and reading room are closed for the month of August while the library's building is under renovation.
