The Writing Seminars Presents: Chaffee Visiting Poet Joshua Mehigan

March 9

"No one is special. We grow old. We die," writes Joshua Mehigan in the first line of his poem 'Sad Stories.' The poem continues as he compiles vignettes into a mottled patchwork that evokes mixed sentiments, leaving us with oddly comforting uncertainties. He captures fleeting, seemingly inconsequential moments and transforms them into vivid, dreamlike imagery. This week Mehigan visits Johns Hopkins to read his poetry. His voice, hardly flowery yet composed, fills the role of the empathetic observer who humbly embraces the inexplicable absurdity of life. 5:30 p.m., Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N. Charles St., (410) 516-8000, theivybookshop.com, free. (Seola Lee)
