SpeakeasyDC was featured in Sunday's (2/15/09) Metro section of the Washingotn Post in an article titled "True Lives, Under a Spotlight" by Tara Bahrampour. SpeakeasyDC trains and showcases local storytellers monthly to share true stories or tall tales, mostly autobigraphical.
SpeakeasDC will be the first community partner event for the 2009 Big Read - D.C. with "Outside Looking In," a tribute to the 2009 Big Read - D.C. city book, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter. Last year they packed the Langston Room for the city read of The Great Gatsby. The event is scheduled for Busboys and Poets April 23rd at 7:30 PM.
