Hence, whenever there is a holiday conflict, the reading will be held on the third Saturday instead. Due to back-to-back religious holidays in September 2020, there will be no regular reading that month. Since there will be no regular September reading, we will have one on July 18 (not to conflict with the NY Poetry Festival). We will continue not to have a regular reading in December. We will keep you posted on the anthology readings for 2020. Last Saturday Readings (3rd Saturday when there is a holiday conflict, etc.) --Park Plaza Restaurant --220 Cadman Plaza West near Clark St. & Pineapple Walk, Brooklyn, NY 11201-- - 718 – 596 – 5900--- 2:30PM--- ---$5 donation---food/drink - Open Mic--- Take the A or C to High Street, 2 or 3 to Clark Street, R to Court Street, Borough Hall---
