America Scores NY: Kids' Poetry Reading
Thursday April 12: 4:00PM – 5:00PM
America SCORES NY will launch the organization's first ever poetry book on Thursday April 12 at the historic Strand Bookstore in Manhattan where some of the young 'poet-athletes' who feature in this new publication will gather for a recital of their work and a celebration of National Poetry Month.
Through a combination of soccer, poetry and service learning, our unique after-school program shines a spotlight on these poet-athletes, helping them develop the skills necessary to lead successful lives off the field and outside the classroom.
America SCORES New York serves as a driving force in promoting sportsmanship, self-expression, commitment and teamwork for youth in under resourced communities in New York City.
Admission Options: This event is free to attend. The event will be located in the Strand's 2nd floor Art Department at our store at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.
