About the event
Please note: This event takes place at Poets House, 10 River Terrace, New York, NY.
The poetry of John Wieners (1934-2004) influenced the San Francisco Renaissance, the Beats, and the poetics of pacifism and gay rights. The many registers of Wiener’s poetry are explored in an evening of readings and conversation occasioned by the publication of two new books, Supplications: Selected Poems of John Wieners and Stars Seen in Person: Selected Journals, with presenters including Joshua Beckman, Raymond Foye, Fanny Howe, Rachel Levitsky, Hoa Nguyen, Cedar Sigo, Lewis Warsh, and others.
$10, $7 for students and seniors, free to Poets House members
