As part of Battery Park City Authority’s Tuesday Talks event series, Poets House will host legendary slam poet, former Nuyorican Poets Café co-director, and Bowery Poetry Club founder Bob Holman for a midday reading and talk honoring the upcoming 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
His recent award-winning work in language revitalization will be showcased with a screening of Khonsay: Poem of Many Tongues, which contains lines from 50 different endangered languages. Readings and discussions of original poems—as well as works of other poets inspired by nature—will highlight our connection with endangered species as we reflect on Earth Day.
