Mr. Hip Presents: Anniversary Poetry Reading Bios and Photos

Dear Literary Lover or Soon-to-be Lit. Lover,

I must say that it has been a wonderful year hosting poetry readings in Boston. I still remember the first reading as if it were yesterday. With that said, I can't wait for our anniversary poetry reading on August 16th at Gold Gallery (655 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02118). The poetry, spoken word, and music will be more than spectacular. This won't just be a poetry reading, it will be a celebration of poetry, art, music, and life. Come see how we make poetry hip.
