Portraits of Poets, an exhibit of photographs by Ted Rosenberg, is on display at Lafayette’s Skillman Library through July 31.

Poet Gerald Stern will read from his latest collection, American Sonnets, at an opening reception 4:10 p.m. Wednesday, March 20, in Skillman Library. Free and open to the public, the reception and exhibit are sponsored by Friends of Skillman Library.

The exhibition, which opened Feb. 3, is curated by Martin Desht. It combines a visual and literary approach to the poets by including a poetry selection from each one represented.

After retiring from a successful career as a corporate executive, Rosenberg immersed himself in the contemporary American literary scene and began to photograph American poets. His work combines the formality of the professional portrait with the warmth of unexpected intimacy.

Exhibit hours are 10 a.m.-10 p.m. daily. For more information, call 610-330-5148.
