Join us in the Antiquarian Tome Chamber (Rare Book Room) for an evening of poetry readings befit only for New York's most cerebral, shrewd and intellectual poets. The evening will consist of readings from such wordsmiths as Ana Fabrega, Joselia Hughes, Patrik Sandberg, Monica Mcclure, Robert Fitterman and of course, Peter BD, author of the poetry collection Milk and Henny.
