A one-of-a-kind DC literary gathering held on October 21, 2022, just before the mid-term elections.
With remarks by Danielle Evans, Alice McDermott, and Alexandra Petri, the Literary State of the Union provided an opportunity to mix-and-mingle with a who’s who of writers from throughout the DC region and to celebrate Edward P. Jones and Susan Shreve, two of our local literary heroes.
Writers and book lovers alike, we were delighted to have you at the party!
