Join us for a celebration of trees in NYC! Listen to live music, learn amazing tree facts, figure out how to identify tree species, and request a tree for your street. We’ll also create our own poetrees on plantable paper!
MillionTreesNYC, one of the 132 PlaNYC initiatives, is a citywide, public-private program with an ambitious goal: to plant and care for one million new trees across the city’s five boroughs over the next decade. Visit www.milliontressnyc.org for more info.
Join Tina Chang (Brooklyn) and Paolo Javier (Queens), our young pocket-poets and their families, and other special guests for an afternoon of readings and fun! We invite you to bring a poem of your choice to share, or find one here at Poets House. A great after-school event for families and poetry lovers of all ages, and a festive culmination of our year-long work with local school children.
In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Poets House presents Albert Lamorisse’s timeless children’s film classic The Red Balloon. Afterward, children will make their own floating valentines in the form of hot-air balloon mobiles.
Join The Seventh Quarry and Cross-Cultural Communications in celebrating the publication of Dylan Thomas Walking Tour of Greenwich Village (2014), as part of the world-wide Dylan Thomas Centenary celebrations.
