Mother’s Day Eve Reading

May 11, 2019 at 7:00PM

McNally Jackson Soho, 52 Prince St., NYC

On Mother’s Day Eve parent-poets will take back a holiday that so many dread by reading poems of motherhood and childrearing that turn the notion of ‘mommy dearest’ on its pretty little apron-wearing head. Keetje Kuipers, Airea D. Matthews, Rachel Zucker, Monica Ferrell, Jennifer Chang, and Deborah Paredez will help us celebrate a night of mommy poetry without borders or boundaries. In the spirit of supporting all the mamas among us, this event will also be an informal fundraiser for Safe Horizon, an NYC non-profit serving victims of domestic violence and abuse. Please bring a little cash and help us to honor them.
