Baltimore Magazine Names Elizabeth Hazen an Author to Read During Social Distancing
Elizabeth Hazen, author of "Girls Like Us," is named beside Dora Malech and D. Watknins as authors to read during social distancing in a new Baltimore Magazine editorial.
In a new editorial from Baltimore Magazine, Baker award finalist Elizabeth Hazen is named as an author to read "while working from home" (read: social distancing). The magazine puts her name next to other Baltimore stalwarts like the incredible poet Dora Malech and the essayist Kondwani Fidel.
Elizabeth has been hit hard by recent event cancelations due to the COVID19 outbreak. Her events at Normal's Books, Greedy Reads, City Lit, and Kensington have been canceled or postponed.
Her newest book, Girls Like Us (released March 1st), is packed with fierce, eloquent, and deeply intelligent poetry focused on female identity and the contradictory personas women are expected to embody.
