Justo en lo Mejor de mi Vida
Just at Life's Best Moment

A family outrageously in crisis, throwing accusations and confessions far and wide.  But in reality it's so clear-cut, like life itself:  life, both unseen and allowed to slip away; is always - JUST AT LIFE'S BEST MOMENT.

Rita Dove, U.S. Poet Laureate

Every year, Teatro de la Luna is proud to host its Spanish Poetry Marathon La Pluma y la Palabra (The Pen and the Word). This year – the 24rd marathon – is no exception. The unparalleled two-day event, which opens at the Library of Congress at noon on Thursday, June 10 and continues at Casa de la Luna on June 11, celebrates the best in Spanish-language poetry and is dedicated to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the passing of Miguel de Cervantes and 100th of Rubén Darío.

Poetry inspires, illuminates, builds language and connects communities. Well-known Hispanic poets, accomplished local poets and open-mike readings are featured at the Marathon. Being this event free of charge, it is an act of love supported by volunteers. Nonetheless, there are expenses that must be covered. Please help us defray the cost of this dynamic annual event making your donation by clicking HERE.

culture and performing arts.
