Wow! On March 11th the Reality Poets performed at the iconic Bowery Poetry Club, rousing the packed house to their feet. After the event one of our members said, "I woke up feeling like a rock star." It warmed my heart to hear those words. So to all who helped make this magical night possible, I want to say Thank You—for showing up, for lending your hearts, for sharing your voices, and most of all, thank you for believing in us. Here are a few photos from the launch:
