Pushcart Prize Winning Introduction

Four Pushcart Prize-winning writers took to the (very, very dim stage) at (Le) Poisson Rouge in 2010 to read from their award-winning works.

The night showcased poetry and prose by Kate Walbert, Marie Howe, Dale Peck and Mark Doty. From pieces set in the past, to ones that reflect on the future, the reading offered a wide variety of work (along with lots of writerly banter). Pushcart Press founder Bill Henderson introduces this excerpt of the reading, which features Kate Walbert and Marie Howe.
