To celebrate the publication of Rattle magazine’s Tribute to New Yorkers issue, contributors will gather for a reading at the KGB Bar in the East Village. The summer issue of Rattle features the poetry of 17 New Yorkers, and a delightful conversation with Jan Heller Levi, recorded live in her Manhattan apartment. Twelve of the 17 poets featured in the issue will be on hand to read short selections of their work.
Nearly 9 million people call the five boroughs home, squeezing into a land area of just 305 square miles. How does life in such a unique locale enter into the poetry, and what do New Yorker poets have in common? We were excited to find out. This was the most intimate themed issue we’ve ever put together. Come find out why! The first 50 in attendance receive a free copy of the issue!
