Your Poetry POPSICKLE Awaits You

It’s time to get ready for POPSICKLE!

POPSICKLE is a literary festival that brings together Brooklyn’s many reading series and small presses for one collectively-curated reading and book fair. And it’s now only weeks away.

When you come down to the Gowanus Ballroom on Saturday, July 23, you’ll get to see a host of great Brooklyn literary institutions– not to mention our own dazzling trio of readers: Dorothea Lasky, Julia Guez, and Ben Pease.

Readings will run from 1 to 8 pm, with music to follow. There will be food, drinks, and a raffle– in short, all kinds of summer fun! Add to that the fact that veteran Rhythmer Kirkwood Adams will be serving as the Metro Rhythm master of ceremonies, and you’ve got a icy-cool Saturday on your hands.

So, before it melts: July 23, 1-8, the Gowanus Ballroom (at 55 9th Street in Brooklyn). You can learn more here, RSVP here, and we’ll see you there.
