City Sages: Baltimore Reading At Normal's - Wednesday August 25th
City Sages: Baltimore, the first publication from CityLit, edited by hard working Jen Michalski, has won "Best Anthology" from this year's Baltimore Magazine's Best Of issue. The anthology collects pieces from dead and legendary Baltimore authors like Mencken, Poe and Gertrude Stein, the living and famous like Anne Tyler, Laura Lippman and Madison Smart Bell and the young and young(ish) turks like Michael Kimball and Adam Robinson.
To celebrate and publicize the release various bookstores around town have been holding readings and due to our honored Red Room getting a makeover from our proactive new landlord, Normal's is now ready to host ours.
The date is Wednesday, August 25th. The readers so far are Michael Kimball, Susan McCallum-Smith, Joe Young and myself. But perhaps we'll be able to lure our old customer John Astin back into town to read "The Black Cat" Poe selection. We'll see.....the reading starts at 8pm. Copies of the 316 page tome will be available for sale.
