Highlandtown for the Holidays

Baltimore author Rafael Alvarez returns home for the holidays — and for a reading at the Highlandtown branch of the Pratt Library at 2 p.m. on Sunday, December 23.

An appropriate venue since his first collection of short fiction was entitled The Fountain of Highlandtown.

You may know Rafael from his years as a reporter for The Baltimore Sun, or as author of the fiction collections, Orlo and Leini and The Fountain of Highlandtown. Or you may know his work as a television writer for Homocide, The Wire, and The Black Donnelly’s. Many people know him as the Mister Baltimore, the teller of Baltimore stories.

His most recent television show hit is Life, for which he is writer and producer.

Alvarez reads his work alongside Mimi Zannino and Airin Miller at the new Highlandtown branch of the Pratt located on the corner of Conkling and Eastern avenue.
