Stay for the reception and learn more about the 30-year history of the group and the collaborative process they use to write their poetry.

Takoma Park Poet Laureate Merrill Leffler also will read some poems about civil rights as part of the City of Takoma Park’s month-long commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s death. This free event will be held at 7:30 pm on Thursday, April 19, in the Takoma Park Community Center Auditorium at 7500 Maple Avenue.
