Readers and Riders: Metro Poetry Series with Yael Flusberg

date Sunday, 2 October 2011 time 4 p.m.

Yael Flusberg


Experience the spoken word in a context often defined by silence. Knowledge Commons DC is hosting readings by local poets on the last car of metro trains at 4 o’clock on all four Sundays in June. Join us for a twofold transportation as we travel through the tunnels of DC and the words of local poets.

Yael Flusberg will read selections from her work on as we travel through the city she’s lived in for years. On the platform at Ft. Totten she’ll lead a generative exercise focused on finding metaphor in our lives, and bringing those metaphors into being on the page.

For some of Yael’s work go to: and
