Join in inviting members of the community, from the many diverse cultures represented in this fair city, to share a poem that they have loved with a few words telling why.
This evening is modeled on the Favorite Poem Project undertaken by Robert Pinsky, former Poet Laureate of the United States.
If you are interested in reading a poem at this year's event, choose a poem you have read and admired by a published poet (rather than poems written by you or your friends.) Please include an English translation for any poems written in a language other than English. Poems from the wide diversity of cultures represented in Takoma Park are particularly sought.
