The Americans – NJ Immigrant Poets
December 3 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
The Hoboken Historical Museum and Poet-in-Residence Danny Shot are proud to host The Americans – NJ Immigrant Poets. This literary event will take place on Sunday, December 3 at 4pm at the Hoboken Historical Museum, located at 1301 Hudson Street. The event is free and open to the public. It will also be livestreamed on YouTube and Facebook @HobokenMuseum.
Drawing inspiration from Robert Frank’s iconic book of photographs The Americans (1958) we explore what it means to be immigrants in 21st Century United States. Four outstanding poets: Grisel Y. Acosta, Marina Careira, Mark Faunlaugi, and Megha Sood, all immigrants or first-generation Americans will share their experiences living in New Jersey. Fittingly, the first photo in The Americans is “Parade – Hoboken.” This event will be hosted by Poet in Residence Danny Shot, himself the child of immigrants.
The event is free and will also be livestreamed on the Hoboken Historical Museum’s YouTube page. Directions and a schedule of events are available at www.hobokenmuseum.org.
