The Friends of the Woodridge Library invites the public to a talk by author John Muller about his new book Frederick Douglass in Washington, DC: The Lion of Anacostia.
Muller is a local journalist and playwright who grew up in the DC area. His play “The 70” was performed to great acclaim at the MLK Jr. Memorial Library in 2006. It was about the experience of riding the number 70 bus route that ran between the waterfront in Southwest Washington and the plaza in downtown Silver Spring. In the Washington Post, the playwright compared the experience to Mark Twain’s traveling the Mississippi and writing “Huckleberry Finn.”
Frederick Douglass is Muller’s first book. He is working on a second about Mark Twain.
John Muller a former reporter for The Washington Times and current contributor to Capital Community News. He is a library lover and also blogs for Greater Greater Washington.
This event is free and open to the public.
