Poetry Bus

Stopping at 50 cities in 50 days, the 2006 Poetry Bus Tour, sponsored by Wave Books, was the biggest literary event of 2006 and the most ambitious poetry tour ever attempted.

Beginning September 4 and ending October 27, the bus tour visited a variety of venues, including the Space Needle in Seattle, the Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD, the Museum of Natural History in LA, the Green Mill in Chicago, the DiA Arts Center in New York, and bookstores, galleries, bars, prisons, and schools all across the US and Canada.

You can read about the tour and see photos and video on the Poetry Bus blog, and read the 53-day journal, written by poets who were on the bus, at Harriet.
