All right, we all had a great summer, but now it's back to work! We're kicking off the Fall 2013 season of The 510 Readings at the Baltimore Book Festival in spectalofastic fashion, welcoming writers Jessica Anya Blau, Simon Fruelund, Aubrey Hirsch, Heather Rounds, Noel Sloboda, and the 510's own Jen Michalski. We honored and super excited that The Chesapeake Wine Company will be sponsoring the reading. Come out, have a free drink, and listen to this knockout lineup. Hosted by Jen Michalski at 6:30 pm, CityLit Stage. For the full CityLit Stage schedule, go here.
