Celebrate National Poetry Month at Benning Road Library!!

This free open mic and spoken word program is sponsored by the Dorothy Height/Benning Road Library in conjunction with the DC Poetry Project. 

So please come out on April 23rd prepared to share your own work, or the works of any of your favorite poets. Although you are not required to read, it can be a lot of fun! Let's pack the place with DCPP Members!

    Hello Kiane, I'm very sorry we missed you tonight. The program was short, sweet and uplifting. A young poetess (12 years old) joined us and she knocked us off our feet with her poetry. It turned out to be a very special event. So don't despair, there will be a similar program later this summer.

    Hello Kofi, I will be on the metro too. According to Hopstop.com, the library is about a 15 minute walk from the Benning Road Station. After the program, we can walk back to the metro station together. By the way, I am glad that you plan to come!
