Free Fall Baltimore Presents Literary Arts Week

Free Fall Baltimore is yet another reason to look forward to autumn; the free events are as plentiful as the falling leaves.

The most exciting part of Free Fall Baltimore is Baltimore Literary Arts Week. Readings, performances, even evenings with dead authors. There is a lot going on.

For example, the New Mercury Reading at Mencken House takes place Saturday, October 13 and the 510 Reading at Minas Gallery takes place on Saturday, October 19.

The Poe House is having a “Poe-pen” house as they reopen. The Great Halloween Lantern Parade and Festival is always a big hit. Free museums, theaters, concerts, and more!

Come enjoy “An Evening of Dead Baltimore Authors’ On October 10, featuring Edgar Allan Poe, H.L. Mencken, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dashiell Hammett, Ogden Nash, Walter Lord, Gertrude Stein, Upton Sinclair, Karl Shapiro, Emily Post, Munro Leaf, John Dos Passos, and others!

The very first item on the Free Fall Baltimore website’s list? Lit and Art at the Watermark! The next Lit & Art event takes place at the Watermark Gallery on Sunday, October 13 from 2 to 5 p.m.

Join us at the Watermark Gallery, 100 S. Charles St., across from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor for original art by Manzar; original songs by Goodloe Byron; readings by Lauren Eisenberg Davis, D.R. Belz, and Barbara Friedland; an exciting presentation by Tom Glenn on the fall of Saigon (he was there as it happened); and a special musical performance by National Book Award nominee Madison Smartt Bell. Did we mention free wine and refreshments?

Check out all of the events that make up Baltimore Literary Arts Week … and all of the exciting activities that make up Free Fall Baltimore!
