Word Up Reading with Joe Pan

On Saturday, November 7th from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm, Word Up Community Bookshop in Washington Heights will host a reading of seven city poets. Among the featured poets is Joe Pan, whose poetry collection Hiccups we published this past October.

Word Up describes itself as a “multilingual, general-interest community bookstore and arts space … committed to preserving and building a neighborhood in which all residents help each other to live better informed and more expressive lives, using books as an instrument of reciprocal education and exchange, empowering not only themselves, but their community.” Word Up is run by volunteers and hosts literary readings, film screenings, concerts, community meetings, workshops, and reading groups with the goal of bolstering the creative community in upper Manhattan.

See the reading’s Facebook event to learn more about Pan, the bookstore, and the six other featured poets.

Hiccups is available through Small Press Distribution online.
