An announcement from the Poetry Project:
Is there a better place to be on New Year’s Day in New York City? Please join the Poetry Project for our benefit, the 35th Annual New Year’s Day Marathon Reading! Ron Padgett will kick us off at 2pm and about 140 performances will lead us into the euphoric early morning. Other things to look forward to: Nicole Peyrafitte making crepes in the Parish Hall, pierogis from Veselka, an abundance of newly donated small press poetry books, and of course, charming and well-dressed hosts.
Note that our office will be closed the week of the 22nd. See below for complete information:
