Essayist and poet Lucinda Marshall is no stranger to the literary scene at Gaithersburg Library. For the last three years the area writer has led this branch's Teen Writers' Club under the auspices of the Maryland Writers' Association.
Come January, Marshall will kick off a new forum for area poets, the DiVerse Gaithersburg Poetry Reading and Open Mic. Along with featured poets, each reading will offer opportunities for discussion and a chance for others to share their poetry.
DiVerse Gaithersburg will take place on the second Sunday of each month from 2:00 to 4:00 PM on the second floor of the library. For more information, visit the DiVerse Poetry website.
