Poets and New York: Miguel Algarín, Alfred Corn, Toi Derricotte

In this one-time-only event, three distinguished poets read poems inspired by New York City. In discussion, they then consider the connections between place and poetic identity. This event is co-sponsored with More Speech and generously underwritten by the Lyn Chase Poetry Fund. More Speech is a new series of cultural events featuring artists and scholars whose work reflects their experience of America. Free and open the public; advance registration required. To register, contact the Library's events office at [email protected] or 212.288.6900 x230.
