2012 Poets House Showcase

Broken Borders will be one of the poetry collections exhibited at this year’s Poets House Showcase in New York City. The Showcase ensures that each book of poetry displayed is recognized and valued for its contribution to the intellectual and spiritual life of the national poetry community. After the Showcase, all titles exhibited are incorporated into Poets House’s 50,000 volume, non-circulating poetry library. Poets House is a national poetry library and literary center that invites poets and the public to step into the living tradition of poetry. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Showcase which will run from June 30, 2012 through August 4, 2012. Learn more.
