Plutzik portraitPlutzik Memorial Reading Series

Since 1962, we have been celebrating the life and poetic achievements of Hyam Plutzik (1911-1962), critically-acclaimed poet and UR faculty member, by bringing the Rochester community readings by the finest contemporary literary artists.

The Plutzik Series is one of the most prestigious and longest-running reading series in the country. Over the years, the Plutzik Series has featured a vast array of poets and fiction writers, the famous and not-yet famous.

In keeping with Hyam Plutzik's generosity of spirit and commitment to bringing poetry to the community, the Plutzik Series readings have always been open to the public and offered free of charge. To ensure that the Plutzik Memorial Series continues to enrich the cultural life of the University and the Rochester community, we invite you to make a gift.
