Audience members are invited to join us for a pre-reading walking tour of Battery Park City, featuring an introduction to some of its literary and artistic niches. The free tour will begin at 6:00pm at the Poets House booth, near the bandshell in Rockefeller Park.

This pre-house-warming party celebrates our almost-ready, eco-friendly home in Battery Park City (see “The Green Future of Poets House” on page X) and the grand metropolis of New York, which has attracted poets to its shores for generations. Come gather on our new front lawn, just steps from the Hudson River, for a reading by poetic luminaries. A pre-reading tour of local literary and cultural sights begins at 6:00pm in Rockefeller Park at the pavilion, the same site as the reading.
