CANCELLED: 25th Annual Poetry Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge
Jun 8, 2020 | 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
For the first time in 25 years the Annual Poetry Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge is cancelled due to Covid-19.
You would usually have joined hundreds of poets and poetry enthusiasts in Poets House’s annual crossing of the Brooklyn Bridge. Renowned poets lead the processions, reading from poems about the city by some of the greats who lived and worked on these shores. At the end of our journey, we gather for a celebratory dinner, conversation—and more poetry!
