Paterson Literary Review Reading and Art Reception November 2 in Paterson

On Saturday, November 2, the Distinguished Poets Series of the Poetry Center at PCCC will celebrate the publication of the Paterson Literary Review (PLR), issue # 47. This free event features readings by contributors to this issue, including Laura Boss, Linda Hillringhouse, and many others.

Join the Poetry Center in celebrating 40 years of publishing the Paterson Literary Review (PLR) with a reading featuring many contributors to issue #47.  PLR features unpublished work by well-known writers, as well as by writers whose work is so good it should be better known.  Poems from PLR have appeared in Best American Poetry and the Pushcart Prize Anthologies.  PLR has been chosen by the Library Journal, as one of the ten best literary journals in the country, and, in 2008, PLR was chosen as the best journal by the Montserrat Review.

Prior to the reading, the PCCC Art Galleries will host a reception for "The Infinite: Arch and Line" exhibit by Paterson artist, Anna Carina Sinocchi. Sinocchi’s works combine photographic processes with oil paint and drawing media. Please come from 12-1 PM and meet the artist in the Hamilton Club Gallery on the second floor.

The Hamilton Club building is located at 32 Church Street in downtown Paterson. The building is wheelchair accessible. Other services, including large print materials and FM assistive listening devices, are available on request. Parking is at the Passaic County Community College parking lot on College Blvd., between Memorial Drive and Church Street. For further information, contact the Poetry Center at or (973) 684-6555 or visit

The Poetry Center at Passaic County Community College has been awarded several Citations of Excellence, named a Distinguished Arts Project and is funded, in part, by a grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
