ETERNiDAY: Meanwhile, Back in Queens…

ETERNiDAY: QUEENS POET LORE FESTIVAL OF THE LANGUAGE ARTS at the Queens Museum is a day-long, multi-lingual festival showcasing a diverse selection of poets, artists, musicians, performers, educators, and publishers from the borough and beyond. Curated by the current POET LAUREATE OF QUEENS, PAOLO JAVIER, this festival, named after a term coined by Flushing’s own Joseph Cornell, will feature readings, book and printmaking workshops, panel discussions, musical performances, live film narrations and screenings, writing workshops, a publishers’ alley, and a closing reception recognizing this year’s festival honorees.

Born & raised Queens writer/poet/curator AUDREY DIMOLA is hosting the “MEANWHILE, BACK IN QUEENS…” local stage: a marathon showcase of local lit split into two parts, spotlighting various Queens reading series, literary organizations, and writers/poets currently active across the borough.
