Barrelhouse through the Dance Hall

This Sunday at 7 pm, the Barrelhouse road show pulls in to the Marquise Dance Hall in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Join Jennifer L. Knox, Catie Rosemurgy, and Gary J. Whitehead as we celebrate the release of Barrelhouse Issue 4. The Marquise Dance Hall Poetry Series presents poets from a different engaging/out-there/daring/amazing literary journal or press every month, and this month they chose us!
