SOLD OUT - Women Poets of the Village: Candlelight Reading at Cherry Lane Theater

Cherry Lane Theater, 38 Commerce Street, NYC
General Public 

This is event is at capacity and we are no longer accepting reservations. We apologize for any inconvenience.

In 1924, a group of theater artists and the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay commissioned the conversion of a West Village box factory into the Cherry Lane Playhouse, home to some of the most groundbreaking moments of theater. It is from this stage that we'll gather by candlelight to celebrate the trailblazing women poets of the village including Millay, Emma Lazarus, Audre Lorde, Marianne Moore, Sonia Sanchez, Lola Ridge, and many others. 

We will be joined by the incredible New York poets Stephanie Berger, April Bernard, Elaine EquiAngelina Fiordellisi, Diana Goetsch, Marie Howe, Deborah Landau, Elizabeth Macklin, Terese Svoboda, and Kathleen Widdoes, who will offer up readings to uplift these women and change how we see the world around us. 

Sponsored by GVSHP, the Poetry Society of America, The New School Creative Writing Program, and The Poetry Brothel.
