Enjoy an evening of Melopoeia at the Custom House Maritime Museum October 19th

Join us at the Custom House Maritime Museum on Thursday, October 19th as Poets Rhina Espaillat and Alfred Nicol along with classical and flamenco guitarist John Tavano present a new program of melopoeia -- poetry read to the accompaniment of music.

The performance explores various kinds of journeys, or passages: the very different sea-voyages of conquistadors and exiles; the swift travel of atomic particles; a seemingly inconsequential walk from the work-place to the bus; and finally, the passage of time and final border-crossing that lies ahead of us all.
