The People's Poetry Gathering 2001

From US Poet Laureate Stanley Kunitz’s opening night reading, to rock balladeer Patti Smith’s closing concert, the Gathering explores poetry’s roots in oral traditions. With over 100 events at venues throughout lower Manhattan, the Gathering brings together poets from across the aesthetic spectrum, as well as over 40 other presenting organizations. The following events will take place at Poets House. All are $5, free to Poets House members and those with PPG passes, unless otherwise noted.
