Brooklyn Book Festival

The PSA Poets Laureate event at the Brooklyn Book Festival on Sunday, September 21 drew a large, receptive audience snugly assembled on the steps of Borough Hall. The following pictures by Lawrence Schwartzwald (who will soon be featured in Poetry Magazine with a portfolio of his work) convey the sweet and celebratory air of the event. Rita Dove, former U.S.Poet Laureate, Marie Howe, current State Poet for New York, Tina Chang, Poet Laureate of Broolyn, and Ramya Ramana, New York City Youth Poet Laureate are pictured below on stage.

I introduced the event and am pictured with friends of the featured poets who were so happy to see and be with each other, from left to right, AQ, Eduardo Corral, Rachel Eliza Griffiths, Michael Klein, and Carl Phillips, snapping away.
