Poetry from the Rooftops Presents: Aracelis Girmay, A. Van Jordan & Tom Sleigh
The Academy of American Poets continues its annual Poetry from the Rooftops free summer reading series atop the historic Arsenal Building in New York City’s Central Park. The Academy collaborates with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation each year to provide an intimate escape from the flow of traffic and offer New Yorkers the opportunity to hear a diverse group of contemporary poets read original work and "bare their brains to heaven."

*Please note, all Poetry from the Rooftops events have limited capacity. Attendees are encouraged to arrive 10 minutes prior to start time.

Throughout the year, the Academy of American Poets works to support American poets at all stages of their careers and to foster the appreciation of contemporary poetry. The Poetry from the Rooftops lineup this year includes highly acclaimed poets reading side by side with exciting new talent.
Sponsored by the Academy of American Poets, the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs
