“Poetics of Place: How Local Writers Depict DC and Environs,” led by Kim Roberts. Join us in National Poetry Month, as we read and discuss contemporary poems about familiar places in the greater DC region.  Discussions will help us develop both a detailed vocabulary to analyze and interpret literature, as well as an understanding of how poetry can deepen our connection to this place we call home. Readings will be from the anthology Full Moon on K Street: Poems About Washington, DC.  Participants can read poems from the provided course pack (included in the class tuition) or opt to buy the book on the first class (for an additional fee, made available by the publisher at a reduced rate). No prior experience or specialized knowledge is necessary, just a love of reading.  Held on three successive Monday evenings.  Open to the public.  $20 Fee.  Register through Cedar Lane Adult Programs.
