'National Premiere Reading Of Lorna Dee Cervantes' Long-Awaited New Book Drive: The First Quartet' @ The National Museum of Women In the Arts, Oct. 14

"Join us for the national premiere reading of Lorna Dee Cervantes’ long-awaited new book Drive: The First Quartet as we kickoff our 2005-2006 Literary Series. Chicana-Chumash poet Cervantes has received two NEA Fellowships, an American Book Award, and a Lila Wallace-Reader’s Digest Fellowship, as well as the Paterson Poetry Prize and the Latino Literature Prize. Her fiercely intelligent verse explores the boundaries between language and experience. Cervantes’ appearance at the museum will be held in conjunction with the exhibition Mónica Castillo: The Painter and the Body. Doors open half an hour before the program and books will be available for purchase after the reading.

Later this season, return to enjoy lively readings of fiction and poetry followed by discussions, book singings, and receptions as NMWA celebrates the talents of Lisa See, Joyce Carol Oates, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Olympia Vernon.

RESERVATIONS RECOMMENDED Call 202-783-7370 or email for reservations and more information. General admission is $10 and student tickets are $5. Mention that you are a member of the D.C. Poets Against the War and receive the special NMWA member price, $7. Credit card reservations are taken by phone only. Unpaid reservations will be held until ten minutes before the program.
