Able Muse Press presents: Poetry/Light Verse Reading
Light Verse reading in DC
If you’re in or near DC and could use a laugh, some good news…
Able Muse Press is sponsoring Poetry and Punchlines, a night of comic verse, on Dec. 5.
Our lineup at the mic includes: Melissa Balmain (headliner), Brendan Beary, Edmund Conti, Claudia Gary, Mae Scanlan, Ed Shacklee, J.D. Smith, Ryan Wilson and, last but not least, the Washington Post’s beloved Gene Weingarten
Date: Friday, Dec. 5
Time: Doors open at 6pm, reading starts at 7pm
Place: Catholic University of America, Pryzbyla Center, Great Room C
Your holiday shopping: is all taken care of, if you go (several authors will have books on hand to sell/sign)
Metro and Parking Tips: CUA is in the Brookland neighborhood of D.C., and the metro stop on campus is called, logically enough, "CUA/Brookland." There will be plenty of parking available on Harewood Road, which runs right along the side of campus, and parking restrictions will be lifted for the event.
The Pryzbyla Center is a modern, spaceship-like building in the middle of campus. It faces Caldwell Hall, where, we’ve been told, some guy named Yeats read in the late 20s.
