A Busboys and Poetry Event hosted this week by Twain Dooley

Twain Dooley is a first generation American. Born and raised in Washington, DC, he learned to use language to talk himself into and out of inner-city challenges. He joined the Army Reserves and served on active duty during Desert Storm. After a two-year stay in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (as a civilian), he returned to his home town and began to perform his poetry for a variety of audiences. Twain wrote several books and toured as founding member with The Modern Urban Griots. He has opened for Amiri Baraka and Jimmy “JJ” Walker. He has earned a spot on the DC/Baltimore slam team eight times, winning the top honors three. Twain has been called, “funny,”“clever,”“insightful,” and some other things that you probably wouldn’t print in a bio. He currently shares his love of words with students and is working on the story of his life, “None Of This Makes Sense
