BALTIMORE – Eight-Stone Press and CityLit Project put the "Baltimore" in the Baltimore Book Festival with an evening of literary mayhem, music and more beginning at 6:00 p.m., Friday, September 24, 2010, at the CityLit tent, on the circle in Mount Vernon.
Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore! contributing authors Earl Crown, E. Doyle-Gillespie, Sharon Goldner, Fernando Quijano III, William P. Tandy and Lisa Wiseman will offer live interpretations of their work, highlighting the good, bad and ugly of Baltimore life. And don't miss the aural spectacle of "interstellar misfits" The Dirty Marmaduke Flute Squad, whose musical canon includes such classics as "Do You Got a Disease?" and "Show Us Your Boobs (Buy Me a Beer)". While you're there, crack open a complimentary cold one, courtesy of Clipper City Brewing Company, or browse a wide selection of Smile, Hon back issues, t-shirts and more.
Then, come back to the CityLit tent Saturday (9/25) night at 6:30 p.m. for the panel discussion "Eat, Think, Write: Vegan Authors Discuss Their Inspiration". Panelists will include regular Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore! contributors Davida Gypsy Breier (Ninety-Five: Meeting America's Farmed Animals in Stories and Photographs) and Ben Shaberman (The Vegan Monologues), as well as Jonathan Balcombe (Second Nature), Tracye McQuirter (By Any Greens Necessary) and Corinne Bowen ("Crazy Sexy Wellness"). Plus, get there early and enjoy free cupcakes from Emily's Desserts!
