Shelley Puhak: Guinevere in Baltimore

Wednesday, April 9 at 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Award-winning poet Shelley Puhak reads from her latest collection of poetry, Guinevere in Baltimore. Puhak, a professor at Notre Dame of Maryland University, was featured in the February issue of Baltimore magazine:

Winner of the eighth annual Anthony Hecht Poetry Prize, Guinevere in Baltimore unspools as a linked series, with King Arthur recast as the cuckolded CEO of an overseas shipping corporation; Queen Guinevere as his adulterous, ennui-ridden wife; and self-doubting Sir Lancelot as the firm’s top salesman, Arthur’s best buddy, and Guinevere’s lover. Puhak deftly nestles the trio into a landscape of Baltimore landmarks (Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower, The Walters Art Musuem, Fells Point wharf) and history (Great Fire of 1904).
