Armenian Poets at the First New York Poetry Festival

Nancy Agabian, Lola Koundakjian and Alan Semerdjian will reading at the 1st New York Poetry Festival, on Sunday July 31st at 1pm.

They will appear on Stage 2 -- the Brigadier, representing the Armenian Poetry Project and Gartal.

Free and open to the public, the first annual New York Poetry Festival (NYPF) on Governors Island will showcase all of the different formats, aesthetics, and personalities of New York City reading series and collectives, in one place at one time, July 30th and 31st.

With over 30 reading series, 100 poets and tons of vendors on board, the festival intends to create branches between disparate poetry communities, and other artists and artisans, by bringing poetry out of the dark bars and universities and by placing it amongst sycamores on an island in the sun.

Bob Holman will serve as our Grand Marshal.

Bring a picnic, blanket, sunscreen, and lots of water!
