Today’s young Bronx poets are making noise in new ways, breaking new ground on rhythm and rhyme, taboo themes, and personal identity. Three Rooms Press has hand-picked leading poets from the new wave of Bronx artists for a rare collective Manhattan appearance. Poets include Rebecca Perez, Melodic, Joel Gonzalez, and Leah Ana Rodriguez. The event will also feature an open poetry mic, hosted by Peter Carlaftes and Kat Georges.
