Get Your Poem On/33 “Bronx Memoir Project” vol. 3


I had the honor of being part of a reading by contributors of Bronx Memoir Project volume 3.  It took place at The Huntington Free Library, over 125 years old.


Many of the contributors read a slice of memoir.  The pieces were moving in many ways.  When I read mine, I felt the room soooo with me.  That feels so validating.  Later, a number of people came over to hug me.  Real hugs, not the air waste-of-time kind.  The warmth of many Bronx people is beautiful.  Photos were taken and I hope they get shared soon.  I look forward to seeing them.


If you are curious to read the stories (they range from 1 to 5 pages each), and if you’d feel good supporting the Bronx Council on the Arts, you can use this link to purchase your copy
