Reading Events, Baltimore, June 19-23

Another City Sages reading this week:

CITY SAGES: BALTIMORE Reading Party at the Creative Alliance

"There is a saying in Baltimore," Mencken said, "that crabs may be prepared in fifty ways and that all of them are good." CityLit Press’ popular new anthology, City Sages: Baltimore (CityLit Press, 2010), includes Baltimore’s best writers gathered by editor Jen Michalski, including greats Edgar Allan Poe, Frederick Douglass, and F. Scott Fitzgerald; contemporary writers Laura Lippman, Anne Tyler, Madison Smartt Bell, and Rafael Alvarez; and upcoming writers.

Sage writer Jen Grow hosts an evening of music and performances by Sages contributors Rafael Alvarez, Joe Young, Jen Michalski, Michael Kimball, and multi-talented Geoffrey Becker, who’ll also be playing acoustic guitar. MC’d by Gregg Wilhelm, founder and Executive Director of CityLity Project, this evening will include special guests Deborah Rudacille and actors Charley Scalies and Benay Berger from The Wire reading from Gertrude Stein, Mencken, and others. $5 mbrs. (Free popcorn for mbrs!)
