Poetry Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge

Monday, June 10, 2019

Journey with Poets House across the Brooklyn Bridge, from Manhattan to Brooklyn, to celebrate Poets House and the poetry of New York City with readings by poets Robert PinskyRosamond KingGregory PardloJenny Xie, and Anne Waldman, who they will present with our Elizabeth Kray Award for service to poetry.
This year marks Poets House’s 10th anniversary at 10 River Terrace—as well as Walt Whitman’s bicentennial. Recognition of Whitman’s 200th birthday will lend special significance to the evening as they gather to hear a reading of Whitman’s “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry.”

Afterward, there will bel more readings, accompanied by wine, dinner, and dessert, inside a historic foundry in DUMBO. All proceeds benefit Poets House’s library, public programs, and class trips for children and teens.
6:00pm: Walk begins in Manhattan, near One Centre Street
8:00pm: Seated dinner at 26 Bridge Street in DUMBO
Tickets start at $300; $275 for Poets House members. Reservations required.
