Lets give our neighbors a warm welcome! We met last night at the Canadian Consulate in mid-town, where there was much cheer and excitement. Molly Peacock initiated the series, which is modeled on The Best American Poetry. Celebrated poet Stephanie Bolster selected the poems in this volume. These fine poets will read this evening at the NYU Friday Happy Hour Series (5:00 PM, Lillian Vernon Creative Writers House, 58 West 10th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues) and at The Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery, at Bleecker St) on Saturday at 2:00 PM. Both events are free.
