Highlights from the First Brownstone Poets Anthology Reading

Hello Poets and Friends,

We had an exciting day of poetry and a beautiful memorial for Bob Hart. A true celebration for the written and spoken word in Brooklyn Heights. It didn't rain on "our parade." Instead, it showered words and friendship amongst peers and lovers of poetry. In spite of some cancellations, we had a full house in the back room of the Park Plaza Restaurant.

I want to thank William D. Hart and his wife, Daphne Hawkins (the family of Bob Hart), and Bruce Weber and Joanne Pagano Weber for participating in this moving memorial.
