Corridor Conversations are sponsored by Hyattsville Aging in Place, University Park Helping Hands,  Neighbor Helping Neighbor of College Park and Explorations on Aging to bring us stories of local interest, in particular residents living along the Route 1 Corridor.  
 
Carol Morgan, DC artist, sketches other riders on Metro buses and trains, noticing the diverse backgrounds of the people she sees. Prompted by Carol’s drawings, Gerry Hendershot, a poet from Riverdale Park, imagined the lives of Metro riders and wrote poems about them. Carol’s drawings and Gerry’s poems were published by Politics and Prose as Metro Anthology: Stories and Drawings about Metro Riders. In this presentation, Carol will show and talk about her drawings, and Gerry will read selected poems. Participants will be invited to share their own Metro stories.
