Enjoy a special evening of poetry at the Laurel Public Library on Tuesday, April 9 at 5:30 p.m. from the Delaware Poets Laureate Al Mills and Nnamdi Chukwuocha. Identical twins Al Mills and Nnamdi Chukwuocha, known as the Twin Poets, are social workers, award-winning spoken word poets, nonprofit administrators, elected officials, and community activists. They were appointed as the 17th Poets Laureate of the state of Delaware in December 2015. As Delaware’s Poets Laureate, they are strong advocates for poetry throughout the state by incorporating spoken word and creative writing programming into schools and community centers; introducing poetry as a tool for transformation within detention centers and correctional facilities; and taking spoken word into communities affected by gun violence. The Delaware State Poet Laureate program is facilitated by the Delaware Division of the Arts. The division works with the Delaware Poet Laureate to coordinate activities and appearances in communities throughout the state. This program is made possible with support from the Margarette Hughes Eley Fund of the Delaware Community Foundation. All ages are welcome. Registration is not required.
