BALTIMORE, Md. - Join long-running, critically acclaimed lit zine Smile, Hon,You’re in Baltimore! in kicking off the 2014 Baltimore Book Festival with an evening of voluble hijinks, beginning at 6:00 p.m. Friday, September 26, 2014, on the CityLit Stage at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Smile, Hon contributors Mary Elizabeth Mays, Mike Murphy, Lisa Wiseman, Michael Koenig, Susan Beverly, and E. Doyle-Gillespie will regale the crowd with their respective brands of wisdom, wit, and woe. The event, just like the beer provided by Union Craft Brewing, is free. For more information, email

And speaking of CityLit - it is with no small degree of irony here that we note City Paper's recent (and well-deserved) dubbing of the annual CityLit Festival as "Best Book Festival". We here at Smile, Hon still look forward to CityLit Fest each spring, and offer special thanks to CityLit Founder and Executive Director Gregg Wilhelm for his support over the years.

And on one final CityLit-related note - Smile, Hon editor William P. Tandy joins the ranks of 14 contributing writers to "literary geo-caching adventure" Geo-Poe, which launches October 1. A special October 29 reading at Westminster Hall in downtown Baltimore will feature all 14 participating authors, including Smile, Hon writers:

  • Rahne Alexander
  • Rafael Alvarez
  • Davida Gypsy Breier
  • Caryn Coyle
  • Timmy Reed
  • Dean Bartoli Smith
  • William P. Tandy
