Poetry Reading: Shirley J. Brewer and Barbara Morrison

Come hear two of Baltimore’s best poets read from their new collections!

In After Words, Shirley J. Brewer responds to the stabbing death of Stephen Pitcairn, who envisioned a career as a doctor. Instead, he died in the street just one block from Brewer’s home in Baltimore’s Charles Village neighborhood. In words both spare and poignant, she creates an awareness of the staggering ways violence robs everyone—families, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and society as a whole.

In Terrarium, Barbara Morrison explores the influence of place: where you live, where you grew up, where you travel, where you go in dreams. She seeks out the haunted places of her youth, piecing together memories, as she looks for a way forward through the maze of the present. Echoes of the past find new meaning as Morrison explores the meaning of home.

Free.
