Join us for an evening of poetry featuring three of the most electrifying and engaging performers in the spoken word world!
DIRECTIONS - The official venue address is 621 Huntington Avenue (right at the Longwood Medical Center green line stop), but the building is actually on Tetlow Street. Look for signs directing you to the Pozen Center! It's right by the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and the Boston Latin School. See map close-up at left.
