MICA, Fred Lazarus IV Center, Auditorium, 131 W North Ave, Baltimore.
Wayne Koestenbaum, a poet, painter and cultural critic, is Distinguished Professor of English at the City University of New York Graduate Center. Koestenbaum’s work, both in poetry and nonfiction, has explored the social and mental life of American queer intellectuals. Humiliation, Koestenbaum’s critically acclaimed disquisition on the meaning of humiliation (both personal and universal), was praised by John Waters as “the funniest, smartest, most heartbreaking yet powerful book I’ve read in a long time.”
