This Thursday, April 10, at 7:30 p.m., Takoma Park poet Kathleen O’Toole will read a selection of her original poetry, which includes urban-inspired verse from her thirty years in community organizing and social change, meditative nature lyrics, and provocative poems examining grief and civil rights history. All are welcome to attend this free reading! A time for questions and conversation about poetry will follow the reading.

On Tuesday, April 15, at 7 p.m., local author and historian John DeFerrari will speak about African American restaurateurs in Washington, D.C., from a selection of his book Historic Restaurants of Washington, DC: Capital Eats. Dive into this rich history as DeFerrari recounts stories of the 1920s supper clubs and restaurants of the U Street corridor. All are welcome to attend.

We hope to see you at the library for some of our fantastic programming this April!
