Local Writer Spotlight: Poet Elizabeth Spires

“I felt very much at home when I came here,” said poet Elizabeth Spires, who has lived in Baltimore for more than two decades. “This just felt right. They say there are certain places that are your home.” Spires wanted to live on the East Coast after growing up in Circleville, Ohio. The town’s name comes from the circular burying ground of the local Native American tribes.
