"Identif-I": Hoboken Student Poetry Publication Party

Saturday, May 20, 2017 • 3:00 pm

Location: Hoboken Museum, 1301 Hudson St.

The Hoboken Historical Museum is pleased to host a publication party for Identif-I, an anthology of writing by students from four Hoboken schools on Saturday, May 20, at 3 pm. Poets Rich Villar and Danny Shot facilitated workshops with students from four local schools from November 2016 - March 2017, culminating in this public reading by participating students, along with teachers, family members, classmates, and poets. The event is free and open to the public.

In November and December 2016, poet Rich Villar conducted workshops for about 100 students in four Hoboken schools—Hoboken High School, Elysian School, Hoboken Charter School, The Hudson School. Welcoming Villar into their classrooms were teachers Allison Addona (Hoboken Charter), Regan Michaels (Elysian), Randi Roberts (The Hudson School), and Paul Huggins (Hoboken High). In March 2017, Villar and Hoboken Historical Museum Poet in Residence Danny Shot hosted selected students from the workshops in an after-school Master Class at the Museum.

On May 20, copies of Identif-I will be distributed free to participants, and offered for sale to the public for $5. This project was made possible by a generous grant from Party With Purpose and Hoboken Family Alliance, as well as financial support from CavanKerry Press.
