TRACKS - author tea this weekend

Saturday 10/15/11 3-5 pm
This Saturday we host Baltimore local, Eric D. Goodman and his story collection set on the rails between Baltimore and Chicago. Join us for coffee/tea and munchies.

Each story is told from the perspective of a passenger on the train. They are the strangers we meet every day: a soldier, a salesman, a former mobster, a Holocaust survivor, couples in love, a woman who has lost her parents, a poet, a hit man. These and other characters fill the train with emotion and complexity.
