Who knew growing up in Baltimore in the early 1900s could be so much fun? In the recently published book, I Wouldn’t Have Changed a Thing, Roland Park, a leafy, gentrified suburb of Baltimore, is populated with gypsies, tramps, traveling minstrels, and boys having way too much fun. Then there’s the serious side. The rumble with the City Boys, the heartbreak of young lives lost, and the pending Great War. Based on the memoirs of one of Roland Park’s earliest residents, Luther S. “Ludie” Tall, I Wouldn’t Have Changed a Thing brings the past to life in a most entertaining and delightful way.
The book’s editor and publisher, Holly Lewis Maddux, is Luther Tall’s granddaughter. She is the author of two other books and many feature articles. She is currently working on an historical novel.
Ms. Maddux will read short, entertaining excerpts from the book while showing historical photographs that illuminate the stories. Following the presentation, she will be available to answer questions and sign copies of the book.
