One of New York City’s biggest literary events, featuring more than 150 scheduled performers, returns to the historic Nuyorican Poets Cafe on New Year’s Day. The 24th annual Alternative New Year’s Day Spoken Word/Performance Extravaganza takes place on January 1, 2018, from 2 p.m. to midnight. This year’s theme is “Charge into the Light/Pa’lante a la Luz.”

The Alternative, which continues to be free to the public, features poets, prose writers, monologists, musicians, dancers and other performers in a 10-hour showcase that ranges from some of New York’s most seasoned talents to emerging stars. The lineup evolves each year to keep the event fresh and democratic.

The audience is encouraged to donate paperback books to Books Through Bars for people incarcerated in prison, and canned or boxed food or drink for City Harvest, which provides for the hungry in New York.

Among the poets scheduled to read on January 1 are Miguel Algarin, Steve Dalachinsky, Cornelius Eady, Daniela Gioseffi, hattie gossett, Willie Perdomo, Tracie Morris and Anne Waldman. There will also be a special hour that will feature performances by the poets of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, beginning at 7 p.m.
