Much thanks to all the readers, writers and listeners who gathered to share an evening of poetry in NYC at Herald Square, I SPEAK MY TRUTH. The evening included Poet of My People, poems read by students in their own mother tongue, as well as original poetic monologues by English Comp students at ASA College.

On Thursday 9/8 from 3 to 5, we will again come together to read both poems and poetic passages based on the theme Love and Other Strangers. (Feel free to stop in just to read as many of you are between classes.)
