– CHANGED TO ZOOM – Brooklyn Poets Reading Series (Virtual)

Named one of the best reading series in NYC by Time Out New York, the Brooklyn Poets Reading Series takes place six times a year at 144 Montague St and via Zoom. Each reading features three poets, with at least one from Brooklyn and one from outside the borough, pairing emerging with more established poets and focusing on those from underrepresented communities. This year’s Bookend Event reading will feature poets Paul Hlava Ceballos, Yesenia Montilla, and Kwame Dawes

*PROGRAM UPDATE: This event has been moved online due to severe weather conditions. Join with the Zoom link provided here.
