Date and Time: 
June 9, 2008 - 6:30PM

Brooklyn Bridge

Join Martín Espada, Galway Kinnell, Thomas Lux and Marilyn Nelson in a New York tradition that, according to Time Out New York, "could just make you fall in love with New York all over again." This unforgettable literary pilgrimage over the bridge that inspired Hart Crane, Walt Whitman and generations of poets begins near One Centre Street and stops en route for readings under Roebling's famous arches. Upon arrival at Brooklyn's historic Fulton Ferry Landing, Pulitzer-prize winning poet Galway Kinnell recites Whitman's immortal "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" as the sun sets over the waterfront.
