Neighborhood Poetry Read-In with the Brooklyn & Queens Poet Laureates
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.
This year, we are especially celebrating poetry of place, in conjunction with the upcoming 50th anniversary of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Law.
