The Shelter Island Poetry Project Presents: Encore! An all time favorite from the Poetry Project Archives. “Friends of Frank...Frank O’Hara and the poets of the New York School.” 

Once upon a time in New York City in the 1950s, there occurred a perfect storm of poetry, art, wit and style that completely transformed the postwar landscape of American poetry.  The Shelter Island Poetry project will revisit that storm with a fascinating look at the people who ignited it and the poetry it produced.
