We invite our members to 10 River Terrace for a new Poets House tradition.
Join us for an unforgettable evening spent reading, writing and dreaming the "poetry of the night" in the dimmed stacks of our library. Poet Kristin Prevalett returns for a second year to lead our group.
This is a special event open only to Members. Space is limited. For details and registration contact Krista Manrique: (212) 431-7920 ext. 2830, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Join us for a rare opportunity to experience poetry inspired by Mark di Suvero’s sculpture on Governors Island. The exhibition Mark di Suvero at Governors Island: Presented by Storm King Art Center closes on September 30. For ferry and other transportation details visit www.govisland.com
This event is organized by Poets House and Storm King Art Center, and is made possible by the Maurice English Poetry Award.
Matthew Zapruder reads poems by Meredith Walters, Robert Creeley as well as his own work as part of Love in the Showcase: A Reading Celebrating Isn't It Romantic: 100 Love Poems by Younger American Poets (Brett Fletcher Lauer and Aimee Kelley, editors).
Poets Susan Howe and Susan Stewart discuss modernist and postmodernist poetics, with a special emphasis on Wallace Stevens (1879 – 1955), one of the "inventors" of the art in the 20th century. The evening concludes with a reading by both poets.
