This September, Village Preservation is thrilled to be launching Village Voices, an engaging installation of exhibit boxes displayed throughout our neighborhoods featuring photographs, artifacts, and recorded narration that will provide entertaining and illuminating insight into the momentous heritage of the Village. At this special reading event, we will highlight and celebrate the literary life and legacies of Village writers and musicians, including James Baldwin, Henry James, W.H. Auden, Lorraine Hansberry, e.e. cummings, Oliver Sacks, Larry Kramer, Patti Smith, Bob Dylan, and Margaret Wise Brown. As a preview to this event, writings by these authors will be presented at this special evening by writers, Villagers, and friends including:
Jared Daniel Fagen
Co-hosted by the Merchant’s House Museum, the Poetry Brothel, the Poetry Project, Hudson Park Library, Jefferson Market Library, and Tompkins Square Library.
Want to know more about these and other writers, artists, and innovators who made their mark in our neighborhoods? Join us for our upcoming Village Voices benefit, an installation throughout our neighborhoods featuring photographs, artifacts, and recorded narration that highlight beloved aspects of the Village.
