Event Announcement: Crossing the Atlantic, April 15, 2012 at 4PM


Crossing the Atlantic

Poets British and American


Please join the Sunday Best Reading Series on Sunday, April 15, for an afternoon of poetry by literary artists from both sides of the pond. Britain-based poets Anne-Marie Fyfe and Cheryl Moskowitz will join Washington Heights’ own Chris Hansen-Nelson in offering Sunday Best audience members with a program of verse both eclectic and entertaining. As usual, the reading will take place in The Lounge at Hudson View Gardens at 4PM. A suggested donation of $7 covers the performance as well as drinks and snacks at the reception after the event where audience members will have a chance to meet and mingle with the poets.
