Seasons greetings, bookworms! It's our annual winter reading show and we're talking the very best books of the year. Take note (and share your suggestions!)
As development, gentrification and professional opportunities reconfigure D.C., new neighbors move in, bringing new backgrounds, politics, philosophies and traditions. These differences create a uniquely diverse region, but can also lead to neighborly misunderstandings, where seemingly small disagreements can become multi-year, community-dividing feuds that spill over our attached townhouses and backyards. A play currently showing at Arena Stage, “Native Gardens,” was inspired by such disputes- it tells the story of neighbors who go to war over where their property lines end. Kojo explores the tension that can develop among neighbors in places where change is afoot and what it means to be a good neighbor in an evolving city.
