BOA Editions 40th Anniversary Poetry Reading

On July 5 -- one day after BOA Editions officially turns 40 -- the press will celebrate with a free BOA poetry reading at the Bryant Park Reading Room. The evening will feature stellar performances by five highly-acclaimed BOA poets: Jeanne Marie Beaumont, Aracelis Girmay, Erika Meitner, Craig Morgan Teicher, and Michael Waters. Hosting weekly poetry readings by emerging and established poets throughout the summer, the Reading Room is an open-air space where published poets are invited to read their most recent work, and is often regarded as "the place for poetry during the summer."
