Gary Becks Chapbook 'Bryant Park Poems' Released


"Bryant Park is at 42nd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues in New York City that was first a potters field, then a reservoir with 50 foot walls, a Union Army encampment and finally a jewel of a park in 1934. By the 1970's it had become a drug infested, dangerous place. My theatre company presented a week long celebration with Broadway plays, music and more to try to draw attention to its needing help. Finally in the 90's a corporation was formed that renewed the park and it's now again a little jewel. I played chess in the park for many years and the poems were written in the park."

Bryant Park Poems is a 18 page poetry chapbook in paperback with a price of $10.00, ISBN:979-8-53967-405-2 and $2.99 electronic, published by Writing Knights Press. For info or to request a review copy Contact: writingknightspress@gmail.com
