Lit & Art Celebrates Life in Me Like Grass on Fire

The July 31 edition of Lit & Art at the Watermark is a celebration of the fifth anniversary of Life in Me Like Grass on Fire, an anthology of Maryland poets.

In 2011, the Maryland Writer’s Association published an anthology titled Life in Me Like Grass on Fire containing poems by over forty Maryland writers on the theme(s) of love. Editor Laura Shovan claimed then that love could stoke our inspiration, fuel our living, or turn us to ash. On our fifth anniversary, we are still hot!

Join Lit & Art’s celebration of poetry at the Watermark Gallery, 100 South Charles Street in the Bank of America building across from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The festivities take place from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 31 and will include poetry readings, music, art, refreshments, and the opportunity to party with area poets, authors, musicians, artists, and readers. It’s an arty party!

Featured participants include Shirley J. Brewer, Jane Elkin, Frank Joseph, Barbara Morrison, Sonia Linebaugh, Lalita Noronha, Laura Shovan, Patricia Jackovich, Danuta E. Kosk-Kosicka, and the event is hosted by Nitin Jagdish, Eric D. Goodman, and features resident artist Manzar Rassouli.

Started in 2007, the Lit & Art Reading Series takes place about five times a year at the Watermark Gallery, 100 South Charles Street on the second floor of the Bank of America building across from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The program features artists who represent various literary genres combined with visual art. Each event includes literary readings, live music, original art, along with wine and refreshments.
