This Thursday at 7pm, come re-purpose old magazines and newspapers to create poetry and art. Blackout poetry is a form of found poetry created by erasing or covering up pieces of text to make poems out of the remaining words.

The library is hosting a number of events discussing issues of censorship for Banned Books Week, so here’s a chance to wield your pens and markers for good and create something refreshing! Pieces will be used in a display on the second floor.  Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, 901 G St. NW
