An Evening with Rafael Alvarez and Dean Bartoli Smith

Wednesday, January 8, 2014 at 6:30pm

Central Library, Poe Room 400 Cathedral Street, Baltimore, MD 21201

Baltimore authors Rafael Alvarez and Dean Bartoli Smith talk about the writing life in Baltimore and their new books.

Rafael Alvarez' new collection of Baltimore stories, Tales from the Holy Land, charts the secret histories of tugboat men, junk collectors, beautiful women, short order cooks and an artist who captures it all in house paint on the sides of abandoned buildings.

In Never Easy, Never Pretty: A Fan, A City, A Championship Season, Dean Bartoli Smith writes about the Baltimore Ravens' 2012-13 season, winning Super Bowl XLVII, and how a football team impacts its fans and its city.
