Through our Poet Laureate program and Third Thursday Poetry Readings, the spoken word has a home in Takoma Park. Established in 2005, our Poet Laureate program has celebrated Donald Berger (2005-2007), Anne Becker (2007-2011) and our current Poet Laureate Merrill Leffler.
The popular "Third Thursday" poetry series features the work of a wide range of poets from across the region. Words begin at 7:30 pm on the third Thursday of the month in the Takoma Park Community Center Auditorium. Stay tuned for more information about our fall 2014 line up.
