Councilmember David Grosso (I-At Large) will host a poetry evening at his Wilson Building office this Wednesday. D.C. Poet Laureate Dolores Kendrick and the D.C. Youth Slam Team are scheduled to perform.

"As a strong proponent for the arts, I am delighted to welcome the arts community to my office for yet another opportunity to showcase their artistic talent," Grosso said of his third open house in an email. "These events serve as an enriching opportunity to engage with the public and highlight D.C.'s thriving arts community. The talent in the District is enormous, as evidenced by the D.C. Youth Slam Team's second-place finish during the Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival."

Members of Free Minds and D.C. Scores Youth Poets will also preform. The event runs from 6 to 8 p.m.
