Paperback Poetry Festival 2019 | FDR Park Boathouse | Sunday, 23. June 2019

Paperback Poetry Festival is a safe and welcoming space in which poets, writers, and artists from estranged communities can celebrate one another. It is also a collaborative effort between Philly's sub-art-communities to make, if even just for a day, excellent art and literature accessible to all.
Featured Performers - Raquel Salas Rivera, Hazel the Aura, Alyesha Wise, Jen Anolik, and David Pratt.
Spotlight Performers - Shanel Edwards, Shirmina Smith, Naz Bowman, and Jamal Parker.
This event is presented by the City's Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy as part of Performances in Public Spaces, a summer series of FREE cultural performances in parks and plazas across Philadelphia neighborhoods. From May through October, the annual series presents arts and culture experiences in local outdoor spaces.
