Evening of panels honors and celebrates the history of DC poets and poetry movements.  A Splendid Wake arose from a desire to honor the poets of the past decades who have left us, and to announce the creation of an online site, A Splendid Wake, to help document and preserve the remarkable literary history of Washington poetry from 1900 through the present. Speakers include: Karren L. Alenier, Luis Alberto Ambroggio, Sarah Browning, Grace Cavalieri, Teri Cross Davis, Brian Gilmore, Dolores Kendrick, Jennifer King, Merrill Leffler, E. Ethelbert Miller, Richard Peabody, Kim Roberts, Myra Sklarew, Christopher Sten, and Terence Winch.  Free admission.  Held in Suite 702 on the 7th floor.
