Tonight, Folger Poetry celebrates the 120th anniversary of literary journal Poet Lore and Beltway Poetry Quarterly’s 10 years as an online journal with readings by Kim Addonizio (right) and Kyle Dargan, two poets who have been published in their pages.

Addonizio is based in Oakland, Calif., but grew up in Silver Spring, the daughter of Bob Addie, a Washington Post sports writer. She’s written four collections of poetry, most recently Lucifer at the Starlite, and has been a National Book Award Finalist. Kyle Dargan is a recognizable name in local poetry—-he teaches creative writing and literature at American University and has published several volumes of poetry, including Bouquet of Hungers.

Also part of the event is a conversation with the editors of Poet Lore and Beltway Poetry Quarterly moderated by Jon West-Bey, director of the American Poetry Museum.

ADDONIZIO AND DARGAN READ TONIGHT AT 7:30 P.M. AT FOLGER ELIZABETHAN THEATRE, 102 EAST CAPITOL ST. SE. $12.  (202) 544-4600.
