Cancellation of Brownstone Poets for Saturday, April 25

Cancellation of Brownstone Poets for Saturday, April 25

Cancellation of Brownstone Poets for Saturday, April 25:
Because of the social distancing going on and Park Plaza Restaurant being closed for gatherings, I can’t promise that this reading will happen on April 25. Even if the restaurant opens for regular business, I’m not sure if a gathering of more than 10 people would be safe.


I am concerned for your health, as well as for our friends, family, and the people around us. I don’t want anyone to get sick from a poetry reading.


I hope you are well during this difficult time. Keep writing, do some reading, etc., and try to find peace of mind. We will get over this, hopefully before June.


Kind regards,
Patricia Carragon

Curator, Editor-in-Chief
