Speaking Up, Speaking Out - Poetry Reading by Ann Bracken & B. Morrison

Saturday, May 13 at 2:00pm

Roland Park Branch, Meeting Room 5108 Roland Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21210

Join Baltimore poets Ann Bracken and Barbara Morrison as they share poems that give voice to people who are often silenced. Whether it’s children with special needs, young mothers on welfare, teachers under stress, or children pushed aside in a family, both Bracken and Morrison give voice to the vulnerable. Join us for an engaging and provocative afternoon of poetry.

Her poetry and interviews have appeared in several anthologies and journals. Her poem, “Mrs. S,” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Ann is the deputy editor for Little Patuxent Review and leads workshops for creativity conferences, adult education programs, and local prisons.

Barbara Morrison, who writes under the name B. Morrison, is the author of a memoir, Innocent: Confessions of a Welfare Mother, and two poetry collections, Terrarium and Here at Least. Barbara's award-winning work has been published in anthologies and magazines. She provides editing services and conducts writing workshops.
