Neighborhood Poetry Read-In with the Brooklyn & Queens Poet Laureates

Poem in Your Pocket Day

Apr 24, 2014 | 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Dave Johnson, Children\'s Poetry, Poetry NYC

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.

Funding provided by Goldman Sachs.
