at The Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery, New York City)

On the weekend of July 30-31, Governor’s Island came alive to the sound of poetry: it was the first annual NYC Poetry Festival! Three stages and a brothel, hundreds of poets, the air was filled with sass and camaraderie. Now six poets from the event, Lisa Marie Basile, Jassie Harris, Meghann Plunkett, Rita Mercedes, Sarah Feeley, Ayala Sella, Nick Adamski, Bob Holman w/ Molissa Fenley, join forces to continue the energy and raise funds for the Festival and Bowery Arts + Science, the nonprofit that programs the Bowery Poetry Club.
