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.  http://huntingtonfreelibrary.org/

 

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 https://www.bronxarts.org/programs/the-bronx-memoir-project/.
