(New York City, August 17, 2010) The 7th Annual HOWL! Festival, the East Village

Festival of the Arts, will begin Friday night, September 10th, 5 to 7 PM, with the

festival’s traditional reading of the iconic Allen Ginsberg poem, “Howl.” Taking place on

East Village’s finest poets, including John Giorno and Anne Waldman and will be led

by poet Bob Holman, proprietor of The Bowery Poetry Club, founding member of

HOWL! Festival and East Village luminary.

Opening with a program sensitive to the memory of September 11, 2001, Tompkins

Square Park will resound with Buddhist gongs, chanting monks, chamber music, yoga

practice, poets and musicians, coupled with additional quiet and tranquil activities.

On both Saturday, September 11th and Sunday, September 12th, The Lower

Eastside Girls Club will present The East Village Earth Circus, including live

performances, art and science projects, pony rides (!), and numerous other interactive

activities for children.

For adults, both Saturday and Sunday will be filled with surprises, as well as HOWL’s

long-established events such as the fun-filled, innovative and entertaining Hip Hop

H owl, House of Howl and Lowlife.
