Park View’s Own Kim Roberts Compiles First Poetry Anthology Focused on Washington

With all the snow that’s been first and foremost in the news — not to mention the lack of newspaper delivery — this gem might have been lost in the shuffle.

Sunday’s Washington Post reviewed Full Moon on K Street, poems about Washington, DC. In describing the book, the Post called it “the first anthology of modern poetry to be wholly for, about and by current and former Washington residents — [teeming] with poets who’ve distilled the region’s lifeblood into verse over the past 50 years” … and we have Park View’s own Kim Roberts to thank.

Roberts has lived in Washington since 1987, with much of that time working out of her home in Park View. Its hard to believe that a work such as this could have been compiled and edited by anyone other than Roberts, an accomplished poet in her own right with a deep appreciation for the city she calls home.
