3-18-11: All the Lit That’s Fit to Print

March 18, 2011 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

H.L. Mencken may be known as the Sage of Baltimore, but he wasn’t the only sage of Baltimore.   So notes the writer Jen Michalski in the introduction to an anthology of fiction by Baltimore writers that she has edited in conjunction with the City Lit Project.

It’s called City Sages, and it includes work by historic figures like Mencken, Frederick Douglas, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Zora Neale Hurston.  It has contributions by some of Baltimore’s nationally acclaimed writers like Anne Tyler, Madison Smartt Bell, Alice McDermott and Laura Lippman, and it includes work by a host of other well-known, and less well-known writers who partially comprise the current literary scene in Charm City.

Tom Hall talks with Jen Michalski and Gregg Wilhelm, the President and CEO of the CityLit Project.

In this extra just for the web, you can hear Jen Michalski read aloud from her story “Boy’s Stuff,” which is one of the stories in City Sages.
