It would be a crime to miss the next Lit and Art at the Watermark on April 7 from 2 to 5 p.m.
The scene: 100 South Charles Street, second floor of the Bank of America building right across from Baltimore's Inner Harbor. The skinny: five authors and poets share their works of literature, poetry, and crime fiction. Accomplices: live music, original artwork. Exhibit A: wine; Exhibit B: light refreshments. Spotted at the crime scene: You.
The April Lit & Art event features readers traveling from as far as Indiana — and as close as our own back alleyway. Featured authors and poets include Lucrecia Guerrero, Jerry Holt, Julie Wakeman-Linn, Austin Camacho, and Kathy Cottle. Live music by singer/songwriter Goodloe Byron and original artwork by Manzar. Hosted by Nitin Jagdish and Eric D. Goodman.
Bring five minutes of your own work to share during the open mic session.
The Lit & Art Reading Series is free and open to the public. Wine and refreshments will be served. Join us for Lit and Art at the Watermark from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 7.
You don’t have to be a sleuth to figure out why it’s been called "the best excuse to get lit in Baltimore on a Sunday afternoon."
