PSNY Features Deborah Landau, Terrance Hayes, Timothy Donnelly and more at First Annual Halloween Masquerade Ball
Saturday October 28 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm EDT
PSNY’s First Annual Halloween Masquerade Ball features Deborah Landau, Terrance Hayes, Timothy Donnelly and more on Saturday October 28th 8pm-11pm ET
From the organizers:
“To all poets, poetry lovers, and poets-to-be: look no further for your dream spooky season soiree! Join The Poetry Society of New York for our first ever Masquerade Spectacular on October 28th, from 8:00-11:00pm at the historic Strand’s Rare Book Room!
This Halloweekend extravaganza will be the platonic ideal of a New York evening, complete with live jazz, literary legends, and cold champagne. This iconic landmark-in-the-making is a fundraiser to support The Poetry Society of New York, a 501(c)3 non-profit, in its mission to make poetry—and the arts as a whole—accessible. If you haunt our Halloween spectacular, you will certainly have a night to remember while simultaneously supporting the arts! What can we say: we put the fun in fundraising!
Hosted by the uproarious Dandy (@dandyandfriends), the ball will commence with an 8:00pm VIP entrance (open to those with VIP tickets and to Sestina and Epic PSNY members). Until GA admission opens at 8:30pm, VIPs will mingle to the musical stylings of Hot Club of Flatbush and pick up their signed copies of Seymour Licht’s Halloween Underground, all while talking rhythm and rhyme at our open bar with critically-acclaimed poets Terrance Hayes (National Book Award Winner), Deborah Landau (The Believer Book Award Winner), and Timothy Donnelly (Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award Winner).”
