Stories of the world come alive at the Newseum, where you can go behind the scenes to experience how and why news is made. Stand in the shadow of the Unabomber's cabin, touch the Berlin Wall, marvel at a comprehensive collection of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs and hear never-before-told stories from the journalists and photographers who stood on the front lines of history. This high-tech museum features seven levels of galleries and exhibits, theaters, retail spaces and visitor services where you can explore electronic news, unique artifacts, photojournalism, news history and world news. And, since there's so much to see, your ticket is good for two consecutive days. Take your time and see half the first day, then return the next day to catch what you missed. Learn More
Linda Pastan's work is wise and her palette wide enough to consider the possibilities and potencies of the human voice, while Tracy K. Smith's work is noted for its hauntingly elegant language. Together these two poets explore the language of personal and social realms. Pastan, a former Maryland Poet Laureate, is the author of eleven books of poetry, the most recent being Queen of a Rainy Country. Smith is the Assistant Professor of Creative Writing in the Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University. She is the author of two books of poetry, Duende, winner of the James Laughlin Award, and The Body's Question, winner of the 2002 Cave Canem Poetry Prize.
A wine reception with a book sale and signing will follow the reading.
