Poets Will Recite to You As You Ride in the Wonder Wheel on May 8

Courtesy Parachute Literary Arts
On May 8th from 7 to 10 p.m., Parachute Literary Arts invites you to the first ever poetry ride on the world-famous Wonder Wheel.

Join a "multifarious array" of New York City's new and renowned poets in Coney Island for a surprising ride as the sun sets and the sky darkens. During your ride on the amaazzing Wonder Wheel, poets will recite to you.

Adding to the fun: Cash bar with beer from Coney Island Brewing Company; a booktable and snacks from Dos Toros; broadsides.

Plus: Soozie Hwang & the Relastics sing songs about books (including Vonnegut).

Wonder Wheel Readings by:

Penny Arcade & Amber Atiya & Brenda Coultas & Ian Dreiblatt & Jen Fitzgerald & Matthea Harvey & Brenda Iijima & Amy King & Wanda Phipps & Edwin Torres & Patricia Spears Jones & Lucy Ives & Walt Whitman (a.k.a. Tim Cusack) & Paul Blackburn & more to be revealed

Space is limited RSVP & Tickets Available Here. (Entrance to the Wonder Wheel on West 12th Street)

The evening is a benefit for Parachute Literary Arts' poetry workshops and community poetry libraries in Coney Island. You can read some poetry from previous teen workshops at Teenage Fever Mag or on Parachute Literary Art's website.

Parachute Literary Arts says:
P.S. It is for a good cause!
P.P.S. It is a cheap date!
P.P.P.S. The Wonder Wheel's slogan is Go Up It's Great!
