From this week's Village Voice:
East Village poetry scene still thrives
Bowery Poetry Club has defied the odds of survival (gentrification of the East Village was already well under way) but it's also managed to build a thriving community of poets and performers. Tonight's Bowery Women Salon Reading features some of the 76 contributors to the new anthology Bowery Women, which contains poems by those who have left their makr on the club over the last five years. Fay Chiang, Cynthia Kraman, Amy Ouzoonian, Marjorie Tesser, and others share their work.
