October Open House at the Waldorf School – Ask About the Rudolf Steiner Scholarship

Waldorf Ad_BF 550-800

October Open House at the Waldorf School – Ask About the Rudolf Steiner Scholarship.  A visit to the Waldorf School of Baltimore is an important part of deciding whether a Waldorf education is right for your child. Initially, you will notice the beauty of our hallways and classrooms. What makes a more lasting impression, however, is the sense of purpose and joy you will observe as students move throughout the campus – as they arrive to begin the day, as they travel between classes, and as they depart in the afternoon.

Tonight at The Ivy Bookshop – NATALIE WEXLER: THE OBSERVER

0 Written by: | Tuesday, Sep 16, 2014 3:00pm



Tuesday, September 16, 2014 – 7:00pm

Natalie Wexler takes us back in time to a Baltimore we’d hardly recognize to discuss her newest title of historical fiction.

Baltimore 1807: Eliza Anderson, 26 years old, defies prevailing ideas about a woman’s proper place to become editor of the Observer, a magazine that blends serious commentary and satire. But while Eliza mocks her neighbors, someone in her household is observing her — and feeding scandalous information to her enemies.

Based on real events and incorporating excerpts from actual publications, The Observer sheds light on an era when the young nation was both insecure and feisty. At the same time, it spins a universal tale of forbidden ambition, frustrated love, and ultimately, hard-won empathy across boundaries of class and culture.

Natalie Wexler is the author of two previous novels, The Mother Daughter Show and the award-winning historical novel, A More Obedient Wife. She is the editor of the blogGreater Greater Education, which focuses on public education in Washington, D.C., and a reviewer for the Washington Independent Review of Books. She has also worked as a freelance writer and essayist, a newspaper reporter, a Supreme Court law clerk, a legal historian, and (briefly) an actual lawyer. She lives in Washington, D.C., with her husband.

“Anyone serious about a career as an artist must read this book.” – Adam Sheffer, Partner, Cheim & Read Gallery

In 2011, artist Sharon Louden asked 40 ‘successful’ artists one question: How do you sustain a creative life? The result: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life, a refreshingly honest book that illuminates different paths to fulfillment in the art world, and a number of strategies for juggling creative lives with the everyday need to make a living. Since its initial publishing in 2013 by Intellect Books, distributed by the University of Chicago Press, the book is now in its fifth printing and the word is spreading.

Catch of the Day, Hampden

HampdenFest comes to… Hampden

4 Written by: | Tuesday, Sep 16, 2014 1:05pm


catch of the day fish (2)It never fails. Every year, we see posters and billboards go up for HampdenFest and we’re like, “wait, didn’t that just happen?” This is followed a minute or two later by, “Oh no, wait. That was HonFest.” But what’s the difference? And why do we need two? Don’t both fests celebrate the totally quirky loveable weirdness that is Hampden? Sure, one has lots of scary ladies (and non-ladies) in sky-high, neon beehives and the other has toilet bowl races, but are these two things really appealing to very different demographics? We kinda doubt it.  Nevertheless, the more, the merrier, we say. Read More →
