The Poets House is a beautiful, tiny library with volumes of poetry, and we’re so proud to host our Voice Your Verse fundraiser there Tuesday night, April 17! The night is jam-packed with inspiring responses to one quintessential question: If the world were your classroom, what would you teach a girl?
If you can’t make it, tune into the Livestream here for poetry & Diane Birch’s performance!
