BARROW STREET PRESS presents...
WHO NEEDS POETRY ?
A READING IN CELEBRATION OF NEW WORK
In celebration of our book contest winners, Sarah Ann Winn's 2017 Alma Almanac and Tina Barr's 2018 Green Target, we have invited these authors, along with contest judges and renowned poets Patricia Spears Jones and Elanie Equi, to join in reading from their work at A.I.R. Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. We have also invited poet Jayson P. Smith, accompanied by dancer and choreographer, Morgan Burke, to perform together, and demonstrate more preciously, the interactive and multi-disciplined nature of the written word. We are so grateful to have these voices come together, as they each actively challenge, push against, and illuminate the silver-lining of our current social, political, and aesthetic realities. Come join us and be reminded of why poetry matters and who needs it.
