Christopher T. George, Baltimore Reading, Sunday, May 18: Come and Hear Me!

Two turtles - Chris George poetry reading May 18, 2008

New! 2 HEADS Series
Clayton Fine Books
317 North Charles Street
Baltimore, MD 21201
Tel. 410-752-6800

The concept of this series is to feature writers with "day jobs" that, for the most part, appear (at least at first glance) to be different from their artistic proclivities. Each featured writer will share his/her work interspersed with comments/insights as to how that work is or isn't influenced by the "day job." An audience/writer Q&A follows the reading.

The 2 HEADS Series will take place at (and in support of as it's closing in 7 months and will be a loss dearly felt) Clayton Fine Books (Cam and Donna Northouse, proprietors). This bookstore/café (just a hop, skip, jump from the Enoch Pratt Free Library), in a charmingly renovated two-story building, offers some 35,000 out-of-print books in literature, fine arts, history, and biography.

The 2 HEADS Series is offered on the Third Sunday of the month at 3 p.m. - beginning May 18 and running through October 19.

So, please plan to join us and grab a sandwich, soup, or snack while sipping some of the amazing coffees and teas at the wonderful café that’s part of Clayton Fine Books.
