Kill Me Now, by local author Timmy Reed, is the journal of a skateboarder named Miles Lover kept over the summer between 8th grade and high school. Miles has divorced parents who live on opposite ends of Roland Park, younger twin sisters, and no friends — though he does see a fair bit of his pot dealer, whom he calls the Beaster Bunny. Midway through the summer, he develops a relationship with an old guy from the neighborhood named Mister Reese, along with his health aide, Diamontay, and their giant boa constrictor, Tickles.

Baltimore, as we all know, is brimming with talent. Our beloved Ravens are enroute to New Orleans to claim their title as Superbowl champions in two weeks. We’ve produced legends such as Dan Deacon, John Waters, and Michael Phelps, to name just a few. Our creative scene is bursting at the seams, and there are endless opportunities to absorb the wonders produced by our artists.
WORMS is precisely one of those opportunities. Area writers come out for a night of readings on a predetermined Tuesday of the month, September through May. This month will highlight work by Timmy Reed, Dave Beaudouin, Kate Greenstreet, and Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez. Hosted by Wham City‘s (and the Baltimore Fishbowl’s!) very own RM O’Brien, the night should be full of fresh and promising work, and some of that great talent we know resides within our rowhomes.
