Reading today with Apostrophe poet, Paul Foster Johnson at the Noguchi Museum in Queens. Here’s the info:

This Sunday, February 8th, the Museum will present “Poetry in the Presence of Sculpture” in the main gallery. Hosted in conjunction with the St. Marks Poetry Project, poets Paul Foster Johnson, Christopher Stackhouse, and Cathy Park Hong will read original work written both directly in response to Noguchi’s work and thematically in keeping with ideas of community and identity.
