Poet Laureate Presents: Women’s Right to Vote

Poet Laureate Marguerite Maria Rivas will lead an interactive afternoon of poetry celebrating Women’s Right to Vote featuring historic and contemporary works. Dr. Rivas’s work is driven by a passion to shed light on forgotten Staten Island authors and poets, specifically women who have paved the way for modern poetry. Dr. Rivas will curate a selection of poems inspired by the current exhibit of Women of the Nation Arise! including works found in the museum archives.

This participatory experience allows Q&A and discussion to unfold through readings.

This program is sponsored by a Humanities New York Vision/Action Grant.
