Bucks County Community College’s Wordsmiths Reading Series presents award-winning novelist Carole Maso and former Bucks County Poet Laureate Cheryl Baldi on Friday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m. They will read from their works in the live online event.
Maso is the author of novels Mother and Child, Ghost Dance and The Art Lover, a collection of short-fiction stories, an essay collection and many other books. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including a Lannan Fellowship. Maso is a professor of literary arts at Brown University in Rhode Island.
Baldi, the 1989 Bucks County Poet Laureate, was a finalist for the Robert Frasier Poetry Award and the Francis Locke Memorial Award. Her work was also nominated for the 2008 Best New Poets Anthology. Her first poetry collection The Shapelessness of Water was published in 2018, and she is currently working on a second, In the Golden Hour. Baldi has taught at Bucks County Community College, worked as a freelance editor, and facilitated community-based workshops exploring women’s lives through literature.
