DiVerse@Casey Poetry Nights

Casey is partnering with DiVerse Gaithersburg to showcase DMV poets in our community. Readings from local featured poets will be followed by an open mic, where members of the community can share an original poem. There will also be time to engage in conversation with the poets.
