About this Event

Laura Schulkind and Dale Brown read from their poetry. Includes open mic and literary trivia quiz.

Laura Schulkind, an attorney by day, is entrusted with others’ stories. Through poetry she tells her own. She has two poetry chapbooks, both published by Finishing Line Press, The Long Arc of Grief (2019) and Lost in Tall Grass (2014). Her writing has also appeared in numerous literary journals including: The Dallas Review, Diverse Voices Quarterly, Dos Passos Review, Forge, The MacGuffin, and Reed Magazine. Her recent collection, The Long Arc of Grief, dedicated to her parents, was impelled by suddenly finding herself in a world without them. But it also moves beyond grief, exploring how we all not merely carry on, but live.

Dale Brown is the author of five books including one of poetry titled I Know I Can Climb the Mountain, which sold out its first edition of 1,000 copies.   She is the author of four other non-fiction books and many articles.  She started her poetry career as a teenager, and has had over 200 poems published in literary magazines.  She has read her poetry at The Folger Library, Martin Luther King Library, Georgetown Hospital and many other venues. She is excited to do her first featured reading in the decade of 2020 at Words Out Loud.
