(this is the note from curator Greta Byrum):
When poets met CAFÉ, it was love at first sight. Soon they moved in together. The romance goes on.
Poets sit, read, eavesdrop, write, or hide in CAFÉ; CAFÉ’s mood is set by its poets. Words are read, exchanged, gathered, and discussed.
Please come celebrate poets, CAFÉ, and their life together, on Thursday July 2, 5-8:30, in the café at The Phillips Collection, Washington DC.
Come and do what poets do: read, eavesdrop, play, eat, write, hide, or – whatever you like. There will be no requirement to read or to listen, and no open mic. There will be plenty of poets and opportunities to be poetic.
We also invite you to bring a book for donation to our BOOK collection: poetry or not, whatever you’d like to read in a café.
Please RSVP if you can come, and we will put your name on our POET list.
If you can't make it on July 2, but would like to donate a book, please write to email@example.com
At The Phillips Collection, 1600 21st Street NW, Washington DC 20009, Phone: 202.387.2151. $-FREE-$
