If you haven’t been to Artifact Coffee for the popular Starts Here! reading series, sponsored by the Ivy Bookshop, this Monday October 27, 7 pm, might be the night to start. The Baltimore Fishbowl’s own Literary Editor Betsy Boyd will read from works in progress, and two-time National Book Award nominee Howard Norman will read from his recently published ghost story of a novel, Next Life Might Be Kinder.


For the many real estate addicts among our readers, Susan Coll’s comic novel The Stager will be a special treat. Set in what the New York Times reviewer called the “affluenza-ravaged cul-de-sacs” of Bethesda, Coll’s “excruciatingly funny” story dissects love, friendship, envy, and prescription drug abuse as it all, very literally, goes down the rabbit hole. Read Julie Klam’s write-up in the Washington Post and prepare to succumb to the curb appeal. It made the NYT Editor’s Choice list this past Sunday!
