Poetry Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge – a benefit for Poets House

June 13, 2016, 12:00 AM EDT

Join Poets House for their annual poetic pilgrimage across one of our city’s most beloved landmarks. Great poets including Robin Coste Lewis, Thomas Lux, E. Ethelbert Miller, Sharon Olds, Ocean Vuong, and special guest Bill Murray read classic NYC-inspired poems under the arches of the Bridge as all trek en masse from Manhattan to Brooklyn, where a delicious dinner, wine, and more words await. This is a do-not-miss New York City tradition.
All proceeds help make possible the hundreds of free and affordable public programs Poets House presents each year.
