Allen Ginsberg Poetry Awards Reading

This weekend the Poetry Center at PCCC hosted readings by winners and finalists of the annual Allen Ginsberg Poetry Awards. The awards celebrate native Patersonian, Allen Ginsberg.

The Hamilton Club on Church Street was filled with poets and lovers of poetry. 

"Paterson has such a rich history of poetry between Ginsberg and William Carlos Williams," said Maria Mazziotti Gillan, executive director of the Poetry Center at Passaic County Community College, which oversees the awards. "This is a way to bring that history to the present."
