Most weeks we’re joined by a special featured artist in the middle of the night and though admission’s free, we hope you’ll bring a little something for their tip jar! Tonight we’re joined by Frank Hogans. “Frank’s music is evocative of the pain and beauty – the downright JOY of growing into wisdom. With an arsenal of dark and surprising chord voicings, out-of-the-box tunings, and a counter-intuitively powerfully fragile vocal delivery, Frank Hogans is one of the most beautiful writers in the Maryland area.”

In the Stacks: Part 10
Feb 18 – 20, 6PM, 7PM, & 8PM
In the Stacks
17 E Mt Vernon Place, Baltimore
A choose-your-own adventure in one of the most beautiful libraries in the world! Submersive Productions is proud to premiere See Also, a site-specific, immersive theater experience exploring Baltimore’s historic George Peabody Library and other Johns Hopkins collections. The production is inspired by “see also” references, a traditional library cataloging practice that linked different terms on catalog cards. The simple phrase “see also” suggests many ideas: from a need to classify the world around us and an inclination to abandon one topic of research for another, to an evolving, feminist understanding of truth that makes space for many voices simultaneously. Like a card catalog, See Also will prompt a variety of complex and thought-provoking journeys. Following threads (both figurative and literal) around the George Peabody Library in a choose-your-own-adventure style, participants will encounter visual art, soundscapes, and performers portraying character composites based on historical women and non-binary individuals from the collections of the Johns Hopkins Sheridan Libraries and University Museums. The performance will culminate in the world premiere of a work by contemporary female composer Briay Conditt. Performances will occur at 6pm, 7pm, and 8pm each evening and will last approximately 45 minutes. Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the performance you’d like to attend. Entry is free and open to the public with a $20 suggested donation, and will be limited to 100 audience members each. Come enjoy an evening of immersive theater and music in one of the most beautiful libraries in the world!

Taste & Tour at the Garrett-Jacobs Mansion
6PM – 7PM
The Engineers Club
11 W Mount Vernon Pl, Baltimore
During the late-1800s Gilded Age, you needed to secure an invitation from Mary Frick Garrett-Jacobs—a sign that you had been deemed worthy to rub elbows with society’s upper echelon—in order to visit the mansion. Today, however, you don’t need to belong to the upper crust, or even an invitation, to see the Garrett-Jacobs Mansion. You just need a ticket. For Mary Frick—often referred to as “Baltimore’s Mrs. Astor”—her lifelong passion project was the Mount Vernon Place mansion that now bears her name. To create the Garrett-Jacobs Mansion, she ultimately combined three large rowhomes into one 40-room showcase that featured the work of two prominent architects: Stanford White and John Russell Pope. Sign up for our new Taste & Tour series, during which you can enjoy a docent-led tour of the mansion, learn its history, and enjoy a signature cocktail or sparkling water.

Writers LIVE! Jerry Mitchell, Race Against Time
7PM – 8:30PM
Enoch Pratt Free Library
400 Cathedral St, Baltimore
In Race Against Time, Jerry Mitchell takes readers on the twisting, pulse-racing road that led to the reopening of four of the most infamous killings from the days of the civil rights movement, decades after the fact. His work played a central role in bringing killers to justice for the assassination of Medgar Evers, the firebombing of Vernon Dahmer, the 16th Street Church bombing in Birmingham and the Mississippi Burning case. Mitchell reveals how he unearthed secret documents, found long-lost suspects and witnesses, building up evidence strong enough to take on the Klan. He takes us into every harrowing scene along the way, as when Mitchell goes into the lion’s den, meeting one-on-one with the very murderers he is seeking to catch. His efforts have put four leading Klansmen behind bars, years after they thought they had gotten away with murder. Jerry Mitchell has been a reporter in Mississippi since 1986. A winner of more than 30 national awards, Mitchell is the founder of the Mississippi Center for Investigative Reporting. The nonprofit is continuing his work of exposing injustices and raising up a new generation of investigative reporters. The Ivy Bookshop will have copies of the book for sale at a book signing following the program.

Writers LIVE! R. Eric Thomas, Here For It
7PM – 8:30PM
Enoch Pratt Free Library
400 Cathedral St, Baltimore
From the creator of Elle’s “Eric Reads the News,” a heartfelt and hilarious memoir-in-essays about growing up seeing the world differently, finding unexpected hope, and experiencing every awkward, extraordinary stumble along the way. In essays by turns hysterical and heartfelt, R. Eric Thomas redefines what it means to be an “other” through the lens of his own life experience. He explores the two worlds of his childhood: the barren urban landscape where his parents’ house was an anomalous bright spot, and the verdant school they sent him to in white suburbia. He writes about struggling to reconcile his Christian identity with his sexuality, the exhaustion of code-switching in college, accidentally getting famous on the internet (for the wrong reason), and the surreal experience of covering the 2016 election, and the seismic changes that came thereafter. Greedy Reads will have copies of the book for sale at a book signing following the program.

Guests will be lead from each room to the next in search of clues left by the spirits of the past. Clues to the murderer of a young woman (and perhaps more still!) will be revealed each step of the way until one of the guests is able to look to within for the answer! Do you have what it takes? Look for clues and find all the suspects photos from 1912! Commune with the spirit of a murdered young woman! All this and more! Prizes will be given to anyone who dresses for the occasion and anyone who solves the mystery! Come early and have dinner at the LB Tavern and then enjoy the show!
