Miguel Algarin, renowned Puerto Rican poet and co-founder of the Nuyorican Poets Café, once again invites you to view the world through his personal memoir, juxtaposing happiness with sorrow. With an introduction by Ernesto Quionez, acclaimed writer of “Bodega Dreams,” Survival Supervivencia spans Algarin's complete collection of published work over the past 35 years.
Through raw prose and brutal honesty, Algarin's poetry takes the reader through an intimate, autobiographical journey that spans his entire life. From his introduction to writing and his insight on New York City life to memories and reflections on loved ones that have passed, Algarin leaves no stone unturned as he bears his soul for all. Survival Supervivencia is a historical tour de force of Algarin's life; public and private. The Bowery Poetry Club proudly hosts this literary giant and invites you to join in the festivities.
Hosting between 20 and 30 shows a week the Bowery Poetry Club (BPC) is proud of our place in the lineage of populist art: the Yiddish theater, burlesque, vaudeville, beat poetry, jazz, and punk that gave the Bowery its name.
