Every year, the National Writers Union features four emerging poets who were personally selected by close associates of Louis Reyes Rivera.
This year, the poets are Cesilie Anandi, Cypress Preston Jackson, Nkosi Nkululeko, and Meriam Rodriguez. Carolyn Butts and Layding Kaliba will also be honored with the 2015 Louis Reyes Rivera Excellence Award for Educator Artists.
The jazz-poetry ensemble UpSurge! will also perform!
Tickets: $15 in advance/ $20 at the door. Event tickets are available for sale through The Nuyorican Poets Cafe Box Office.
