The Bronx County Historical Society and Bronx Council on the Arts presents a new social justice-driven poetry reading and workshop series at Poe Park.
Featured poets will read from Poe's porch from noon to 1:00 p.m. This will be followed by special workshops, panel discussions, and/or lectures in the adjacent Poe Park Visitor Center, just steps away from the historic house landmark. Tours of The Cottage will be available and both programs are free.
From Poe's Porch was designed to create greater awareness of local history by drawing parallels to the issues addressed by Bronx poets today. These include LGBTQ equality, immigration, gentrification, racism, and others.
