Hey, look, there's a reading in Queens. Queens! Where I live! It's the first reading there's been in Queens since I moved here a year and a half ago. Woohoo! It just won't seem like a poetry reading without an hour-long train ride...

Sunday, February 11, 3:00pm
Poetry in the Presence of Sculpture

Brenda Iijima, Jill Magi, Sawako Nakayasu and Srikanth Reddy share work that
resonates with the renowned Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988)
in the exquisite museum and rock garden dedicated to his art.

Co-sponsored by The Noguchi Museum.

@ The Noguchi Museum
9-01 33 rd Road at Vernon Blvd., Long Island City
(N to Broadway in Queens, walk west on Broadway to Vernon Blvd.
For information about shuttle buses to the Museum, visit www.noguchi.org)
$10, $5 for seniors and students, Free to Poets House & Noguchi Museum Members

The First Reading in Queens! What! There are readings all the time. Lay off that crack. I did a reading with tons of other poets at the Waltz Cafe a few weeks ago, and the the Waltz Cafe has a regular reading series. I have personally been part of about 20 readings in Queens.

Look in Queens Council for the Arts. They have listings.
