City Paper Highlights CityLit Press and New Partnership with UB


The annual "Big Books" issue of City Paper (9/15/2010) has a great spread of stories on part of the literary arts scene percolating in Baltimore.  Heather Harris writes about our own launch of CityLit Press and the organization's move to the School of Communications Design at UB. Rachel Monroe checks out what MICA's Ellen Lupton is creating through digital print technology for her Slush Editions imprint.  Finally, Felicia Pride sits down with Jamilah Barnes Creekmur, author of the memoir Raised by the Mistress about growing up with an alcoholic mother who loved a married man.

Sure, we all flash a sarcastic smile when recalling that bus bench slogan about reading, but dig a little deep and discover the true literary artists and literary professionals who make Baltimore a literary city.
