Since 1992, the Poetry Society of America and New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority Arts & Design have joined forces to present poems in one of the most beloved public art programs in America. In celebration of the publication of an anniversary anthology of 100 poems, The Best of Poetry in Motion: Celebrating 25 years on Subways and Buses, featured poets will gather to read their own contributions and favorites by others. Hear readings by Jim Moore, Marilyn Nelson, and Katha Pollitt, and enjoy a panel discussion between participating poets, moderated by Alice Quinn.
Co-presented by the Bryant Park Poetry Series, MTA Arts & Design, and the Poetry Society of America.
Free and open to the public.
