The Brownstone Poets is proud to have its annual anthology event at BookCourt on Sunday, June 24 at 7 p.m. Rain or shine, this is a celebration for sixty-one diverse poets (featured poets from 2011 or poets who had frequently attended the Brownstone Poets reading series during 2011, plus a guest poet). All scheduled anthology contributors are reading from the anthology. Admission is free. This reading will not include an Open Mic.

Sadly, two contributors have recently passed away:

Brant Lyon – May 12

Iris Berman – June 1

Their poems in the Brownstone Poets 2012 Anthology will be heard and cherished. Their poetry was a vital part of the Brownstone Poets community. We will not forget our friends. Their poetry will live on.

Brant Lyon’s “FOREVER DADA,” will be read by Patricia Carragon

Iris Berman’s “RUNNING SCARED,” will be read by Cynthia Toronto

The Brownstone Poets 2012 Anthology will sell for $8 at BookCourt. All anthology contributors will get their complimentary copy at the reading if they haven’t already received one.

George Wallace, the Brownstone Poets’ first Guest Poet, is coming to read at BookCourt:
