The poetry event, “A Nuyorican State of Mind: The Life & Writing of Pedro Pietri,” will be held on Thursday, November 4, 2010, from 7:00 to 10:00pm at Poets House at 10 River Terrace in New York, New York.
Poets and friends will gather to honor the life and work of Pedro Pietri (1944– 2004), a seminal Nuyorican poet and playwright, whose subversive, irreverent writings include “Puerto Rican Obituary,” “Invisible Poetry,” “Traffic Violations,” and “The Masses Are Asses.”
Panelists include Sam Díaz, Bob Holman, Marilyn Kiss, Jesús Papoleto Meléndez, Nancy Mercado, Myrna Nieves, and Dan Shot. The panel discussion will be moderated by David Henderson.
