Favorite Poem Evening returns!
The 9th. annual Favorite Poem Evening will be held on Thursday April 26th. In the Takoma Park Maryland Library at 7:30 p.m. This year’s public celebration and reading of poems will be sponsored jointly by the Library and the Friends of the Library, and will once again be hosted by Takoma Park’s Poet Laureate Don Berger.
If you are interested in participating in 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). Poems written in languages other than English are welcome, if they are accompanied by an English translation.
Please send the name and author of the poem you have chosen and your own name and generic occupation for inclusion in a printed program to Ellen Robbins at the Takoma Park Maryland Library, or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org The deadline for submissions is April 20.
The Favorite Poem Evening has been a lovely, warm and community-building event for the past eight years. Please come and bring your friends and neighbors! Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Library.
This year we will also have a poetry creating night for children: Spring Poetry Night with local poet Rosanne Singer. Monday, April 16 at 7 pm. Please call the library to sign up in advance. 301.891.7259Posted by library at April 12, 2007 01:05 PM
