Change of Schedule for 2020

Change of schedule for Brownstone Poets in 2020:



as of January 2020, the reading series will be held on the last Saturday of the month unless it conflicts with a holiday. 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.)
