Ninth Annual Poets House Bridge Walk
"An event that may make you fall in love with New York city all over again." —Time Out New York
Join Sandra Alcosser, Galway Kinnell, Tracie Morris, Marie Ponsot, and others as we celebrate poetry and New York City. The Walk features poetry readings in Manhattan, on the Brooklyn Bridge, and at Brooklyn's Fulton Ferry Landing. The evening concludes with a festive dinner to benefit Poets House.
In honor of Poets House co-founder Elizabeth Kray, the Elizabeth Kray Award for Service to Poetry, "the Betty," is presented every other year to someone who has made an extraordinary contribution to the field. This year, we are delighted to recognize Robert Bly for his role in opening American letters to voices from around the world.
