Next Week is Train Week

Interesting, how some things seem to come in threes. Next week, there’s an engine, boxcar, and caboose of train-related events. It’s already got some people calling it the unofficial Train Week in Baltimore.

The Engine: Train Week gets started with Blood on the Tracks at Cyclops Books & Music on Sunday, November 13 at 8 p.m. Activist Brian Willson brings his extraordinary story to Cyclops for an unforgettable night of history, horror and hope—and he also brings copies of his new book, Blood on the Tracks.

The Boxcar: A Night of Train Stories and Songs @ Cyclops takes place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, November 16. I’ll be reading excerpts from Tracks: A Novel in Stories. Friends and fellow writers will share their own train-themed stories and poems, including Holly Morse-Ellington, Shirley J. Brewer, Lauren Beth Eisenberg, Eric Campos, and Danuta Hinc. And live train songs will be performed by Red Tractor Factory. Free rail drinks will be served, and the party includes social time with a playlist of train songs and conversation.

The Caboose: Tracks at the B&O Railroad Museum. Come visit the B&O Railroad museum on Saturday, November 19 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and stop by bay 14/15. I’ll be stationed there with a display for Tracks. We’ll enjoy some train talk, and I’ll sign copies of the book the B&O Railroad Museum calls “a great gift for the fiction reader or train lover!”

Next week is full of train events. Woo-hoo!
