Carolyn A. Surrick: Silently, Shadows are Sweeping

Wednesday, June 11, 2014 at 6:30pm

Central Library, Poe Room 400 Cathedral Street, Baltimore, MD 21201

Carolyn Surrick is a musician who specializes in early music. She is an acclaimed viola da gamba player who tours and records with Ensemble Galilei. She and her colleagues played each week for soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, and Surrick wrote Between War and Here, a collection of poems and essays about her experience playing for wounded veterans. Her new book, Silently, Shadows are Sweeping, is about the final days of her father and stepmother, a deeply moving portrait of love, loss, finality and forgiveness.
