Join us as we celebrate the launch of our new online database honoring the writers who have historically captured the human condition in our city and around the world through their literary works. Enjoy food, an open bar and a guided tour by creators Kim Roberts and Dan Vera of our newly designed D.C. Writers website on November 29th at the Uline Arena.
This project documents the homes of literary authors who once lived in the greater Washington, DC region. We wanted to honor the widest range of literary authors possible, including authors of different backgrounds, writing styles, and influences. We include novelists, poets, playwrights, and memoirists. We do not include writers who were solely journalists, and, with few exceptions, authors of genre literature. We have tried hard to include authors from a range of time periods, from the city’s founding in 1800 through the present.
