The 20th Annual Poetry Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge

A Benefit for Poets House

Jun 8, 2015 | 6:30 pm

Join us for the 20th anniversary of our annual poetic pilgrimage across one of our city’s most beloved landmarks. Great poets including Richard Blanco , Brooklyn Poet Laureate Tina Chang, Cornelius Eady, Edward Hirsch, Laura Kasischke, Thomas Lux, Ocean Vuong, and special guest Bill Murray read classic NYC-inspired poems under the arches of the Bridge as we trek en masse from Manhattan to Brooklyn, where a delicious dinner, wine, and more words await. This is a do-not-miss New York City tradition.

All proceeds help make possible the hundreds of free and affordable public programs Poets House presents each year.

This event is currently Sold Out. For more information please contact Krista at (212) 431-7920, ext. 2830 or
