Lit and Art Rings in 10th Year with Exciting Changes

The Lit and Art Reading Series enters it's 10th year with some exciting changes and talented new participants!

The majority of our Lit & Art events have been held at The Watermark Gallery in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, with some events held at the Baltimore Book Festival and the Historic York Inn / Smyser-Bair House. Due to renovations being done to the building that houses the Watermark, we sought new venues this year.

Some of this year's Lit & Art events will be held at The Ivy Bookshop's Bird in Hand location, at our traditional last Sunday of the month time. Others will be held in conjunction with the City of York's First Friday events at The Historic York Inn / Smyser-Bair House. We'll also plan to have one event at the Baltimore Book Festival and one back at the newly renovated Watermark Gallery.

Who's participating this year? We've got a great lineup that includes musical acts Limestone Connection, Red Sammy, Braking Rays, Goodloe Byron, and Jacob Panic, and a diverse collection of writers and poets including Richard Peabody, Jen Grow, Ron Tanner, Laura Shovan, Rafael Alvarez, Michael Hughes, Toby Devens, D.R. Belz, Katherine Cottle, Christopher T. George, Bill Hughes, Earl Crown, Lauren Eisenberg, Sally Whitney, Virginia Crawford, Tom Glenn, Danuta Kosk-Kosika, Sid Gold, Barbara DeCeasar, Jerry Holt, Lucrecia Gurrero, Sam Schmidt, CL Bledsoe, Harrison Demchick, Shirley Brewer, Nik Korpon, Leslie Pietrzk, Charles Rammelkamp, Eric D. Goodman, Nitin Jagdish, and more. All illustrated by the original art of Manzar and light refreshments.
