April is Poetry Month. The Takoma Park Library's tradition of Favorite Poem Night, suspended since 2019 because of Covid, is back this year!
We will be gathering again, this time in the Community Center Auditorium (for social distancing purposes), on Tuesday, April 26, at 7pm--7500 Maple Avenue, Takoma Park. If you would like to read a favorite poem, we ask that you bring something published that is not your own work, and submit the title of the poem, the author, your name and if you like, a description of your occupation, to firstname.lastname@example.org, by April 24. This information will appear on a program we will distribute that night. Also include your phone number and email address in case we need to reach you.
In order to replicate the warmth and intimacy of the recent years of Favorite Poem Night where we gathered in a large circle in the Children's Room, we will circle chairs around the auditorium platform rather than have readers speaking from a lectern. Mask wearing is strongly encouraged; we will have participants from all walks of life, who may have multiple health challenges.Posted by library at April 19, 2022 05:26 PM
