New Releases with Marion Winik, author of The Baltimore Book of the Dead, as curator


September 29, 2018




CityLit Stage

Joining her on the stage are novelists Evan Balkan, Victoria Kennedy, Heather Huddleston, and memoirist Anthony Moll. Huddleston’s work has appeared in Forge Journal, on the TEDx and Listen to Your Mother stages. She’ll read from Mary Walks, a coming-of-age story about the mother of Jesus. Balkan’s Spitfire follows 11-year-old Caroline’s journey through a world that is rapidly changing around her in 1952 Baltimore, that daily tests her mettle and her will. Kennedy’s Zoë Browne is on top of the world, her own boss, and enjoys the security of a loving, supportive family. All that's missing is someone to save her from her happy but loveless life. Moll will read from Out of Step, a queer coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of masculinity and secrecy.
