That's brilliant Sandra - I'll check Laura's restaurant guide, definitely want to have some Baltimore seafood!
I am actually going to be there on the 27th (one day only), so I will pop into the Book festival - great timing! Definitely want to see the Baltimore city sights though, so thanks for the tips and any other highlights to tick off that you may suggest.
Speaking of The Wire, I am about to go watch Season 5 at Cinema Curzon Soho here in London including interviews with David Simon and Dominic West - one conducted by Mark Billingham. Can't wait! Might ask David about Baltimore highlights too.
Great space, Sandra. Good to meet a fellow Canuck, especially a prairie girl. Just posted a chort story about a small prairie town, if you get a chance to drop by. I'm off to your cyber-party rught now. Congrats on the book!
