Visit The Ivy Bookshop on Wednesday, April 24 at 7 p.m. as Evan Balkan discusses his walking guide to Baltimore’s most interesting places, both well-known and off the beaten track. The guide, Walking Baltimore, includes the city’s well-known neighborhoods — Downtown, the Inner Harbor, Mount Vernon, Fells Point and more –but in the voice of its insider author, it also covers lesser-known and far-flung corners, revealing what makes Baltimore such a wonderful and fascinating destination and hometown.
Full of little-known facts and trivia, the book shows how and why Baltimore was an essential player in the country’s early history and continues to be influential today. Here is a city almost unparalleled in American history that lives up to its modern reputation as a quirky, come-as-you-are and be-what-you’ll-be place.
