Tonight: Walt Whitman Poetry Open-Mic in DC

  • Wall of Books 3325 Georgia Ave NW (map)

Open-Mic performances interspersed with Leaves of Grass

aois21's monthly Poetry Open-Mic returns this month with a special reading of Leaves of Grass by famed American poet Walt Whitman. aois21 publisher Keith F. Shovlin and others will be reading from Leaves of Grass in between performances of new and original poetry by local poets.
Over the past few months, we have been gathering at Walls of Books every two weeks for this event as well as Literary Game Night and decided that the poetry night needed an additional boost. Several events were severely lacking in attendance after an initial success last December.
This month's event will be live-streamed on the aois21 Periscope feed and posted to the aois21 YouTube channel and afterward. Individual performances will also be released as episodes of the Passion on the Page podcast, which is currently on hiatus.
If you can make it to Georgia Ave NW in DC, we'd love to see you, or watch it online and come out next month. Visit Walls of Books DC for more information!
