The Inner Loop: Autumn in Anacostia
October 16, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmFREE
The days are slowly growing shorter and something about the crisp air just makes one want to curl up with a good book — or better yet, hear writers read from one of their own! The Inner Loop is excited to be hosting this month’s event in the Black Box at Anacostia Arts Center, and to feature biologist, poet and writer Myra Sklarew, along with nine local writers in fiction, nonfiction and poetry.
Born in Baltimore, biologist, poet, and writer Myra Sklarew was educated at Tufts University, where she earned a BS in biology, and the Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins University, where she earned an MA. She began her career in the sciences, studying at the Cold Spring Harbor Biological Laboratory with Salvador Luria and Max Delbruck, and conducting research on frontal lobe function and delayed response memory in rhesus monkeys at the Yale University School of Medicine.
