Next Up at Winter Poetry

Poets from New Directions read their latest work on February 21 at Kinokuniya.

The city’s premier outdoor poetry series continues its winter run next Tuesday as Kinokuniya Bookstore hosts a session featuring poets from New Directions. Scheduled to appear are Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge, Thalia Field, Susan Howe, and Michael Palmer.

Winter Poetry provides a lifeline for poetry lovers through New York City’s cold weather season, and has gained a steady, appreciative audience. It meets on the third Tuesday of each month through April, bringing us right up to the launch of the Reading Room’s outdoor poetry season. Here’s the rest of the Winter Poetry schedule:

Please note: programs are subject to change. Winter Poetry meets 6pm – 8pm at Kinokuniya Bookstore, just across the street from Bryant Park at 1073 Avenue of the Americas. We thank Kinokuniya for providing a fantastic venue and HSBC for its longtime sponsorship of the Bryant Park Reading Room.
