National Poetry Month, each April, is a celebration of poetry introduced in 1996 and organized by The Academy of American Poets as a way to increase awareness and appreciation of poetry in the United States.

We have again invited Queen’s Poet Laureate (2015-‘18) Maria Lisella to join us, in addition to a poetry open mic.

Board Member DeeAnne Gorman, also a poet, will lead the evening.

$4 suggested donation / FREE for GAHS members.

This program is supported by the membership of the Greater Astoria Historical Society and the surrounding communities of Long Island City.
