WHY: There are hundreds of poetry readings in New York City every month, but very few dedicated solely to prose. Prose Pros changes that. We’ve presented Bob Rosenthal on his years with Allen Ginsberg … Alisa Solomon's cultural history of Fiddler on the Roof… Ron Kolm’s lost East Village… Jennifer Bartlett sussing out the impact of disability on the poems of Larry Eigner… Cliff Fyman on being a waiter at Sardi’s… Bob Sullivan’s very local American Revolution… Jacob Appel’s heartbroken hedgehog… Ada Calhoun’s once-and-future St. Mark’s Place… and funny, timely, profound fiction, nonfiction, and memoir by dozens of wonderful writers.

WHERE: The back room of the East Village’s SideWalk Café, 94 Avenue A at 6th Street All readings are on Thursdays at 6:30 (sharp), usually the first Thursday of the month. One drink minimum (or purchase a munchie). No cover charge but we do ask for a generous contribution, all of which goes to the readers.
