Poetry in The Branches Reading: Quincy Troupe Reading "Casey at the Bat"
Poet Quincy Troupe reads "Casey at the Bat" at the Staten Island Yankees home game, Richmond County Field
Beginning in February 2005, Staten Island teens and adults will be doing what Poetry in The Branches was designed for: bumping into poetry and discovering its delights. The pilot year of this program will see Staten Island branches of The New York Public Library hosting six poetry-writing workshops for teens, and, for adults, a series of readings by stellar poets of their own and their favorite poets’ work. On a Spring afternoon or evening, when a trip on the ferry adds an extra note of pleasure to your day, come hear these readings.
