BATTLE HILL POETRY FESTIVAL

BATTLE HILL POETRY FESTIVAL AT THE GREEN-WOOD CEMETERY
SATURDAY OCTOBER 13, 2007 7PM

A literary event for the living amongst the dead, the Battle Hill
Poetry Festival will be a tremendous gala poetry marathon, the most
elaborate we have ever developed and a lively extension of the spirit
of the Battle Hill Reading Series. Step into the historic Green-Wood
Chapel on a Saturday night in the country’s most beautiful cemetery,
478 acres of woodland right in the middle of New York City, and honor
our poet ancestors -- both permanent residents of Green-Wood, and our
still very-much-alive forbearers. We invite you to join us for Battle
Hill’s Dia de la Muerte.

McTague, Lungfull! Magazine editor, and living resident of Brooklyn’s
geographic apex, Battle Hill, across from the cemetery.

The Battle Hill Reading Series is funded in part by Poets & Writer’s,
Inc. with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a
state agency, and the Green-Wood Historic Fund.

Proceeds will go to benefit the The Green-Wood Historic Fund.
