For the last two years, a number of the city’s poetry-reading series and their affiliated collectives have taken over Governors Island for a day, creating a stage for the many voices of NYC, both celebrated and underground. This year, the crew of the Poetry Society of New York does it again, presenting readings from more than 200 poets and 50 organizations, including the Poetry Brothel, Tin House, Cave Canem and Fireside Follies. Verse luminaries making appearances: Anne Waldman, Paul Legault, CA Conrad and many more.
