Join us for a celebration of 50 years of AGNI, “a beacon of international literary culture” (PEN) and a crown jewel of Boston University. Sanskrit for fire, AGNI ignites with writing that responds to each new now; the magazine has become an essential gathering place for those who feel literature’s power to nurture an authentic engagement with the world.


Three-time U.S. poet laureate Robert Pinsky will emcee this evening of readings and music, with performances by Teju Cole, Victoria Chang, Jo Ann Beard, Chanda Feldman, Caren Beilin, Pinsky himself and the Boston-based, cross-cultural music project Meridian 71, led by Giuseppe Paradiso.


A complimentary catered reception with a cash bar will follow.
