THE MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. MEMORIAL LIBRARY DISPLAYS THE WORKS OF D.C. POETS AGAINST THE WAR (www.dcpaw.org)- RECEPTION TO BE HELD WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 21, 2004, 6-8 PM

 

The District of Columbia Public Library will host the poetry exhibit, D.C. Poets Against the War, January 3 to 26, 2004, in Gallery A-6 of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library, 901 G Street, N.W. The exhibit commemorates the birthday of Nobel Peace Laureate, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A reception, featuring readings of a few of the displayed poems, will be held Wednesday, January 21, 2004, 6-8 pm. Refreshments will be served.

 

In the tradition of our nation's great works of dissent and creative democracy, the exhibit features the literary work of new and established poets, ages 10 to 80, who question, protest and raise their voices against the U.S. government's war on Iraq. The display includes poems by such well-known area poets as E. Ethelbert Miller, Luis Alberto Ambroggio, Kim Roberts and Rei Berroa, as well as an impressive array of emerging poets. The poems are part of the book, D.C. Poets Against the War: An Anthology (Argonne House Press 2003), edited by Sarah Browning, Naomi Ayala, Michele Elliott and Danny Rose.

 

The poetry display is accompanied by the painting "To Life! ¡Por la vida!," a portrait of Martin Luther King, Jr., by Venezuelan artist Armando Arce.

 

All exhibits at the D.C. Public Library are free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Elena Tscherny, coordinator of exhibits and programs, at (202) 727-1183.
