Conference Proceeding: JEWISH POETRY READING BY WASHINGTON, D.C. AREA POETS

The Washington, D.C. area is home to a vibrant poetry scene, including the Split This Rock Festival, numerous poetry journals, countless readings, and several Busboys & Poets cafes across the city and in the suburbs, including U Street, Brookland, Chinatown, Takoma, Arlington, Va., and Hyattsville, Md., with additional locations in development. By hosting readings and building poetry collections, libraries and librarians play an important role in the nurturing of poetic culture. This session will bring together D.C. area poets in a group reading and discussion. Poets will read poems on Jewish themes and discuss the role of Jewish culture in their work.
