One for the Road: Charm City - A Walk Through Baltimore
But you don't have to take my word for it -- This week, the New York Times praised Bell's book as a guide to the "soul" of a "real city." Bell, an award-winning author who has lived in Baltimore for over twenty years, is a professor at Goucher College, where he directs the creative writing program. His book explores the history of the city by traveling through its unique mix of neighborhoods and major arteries, focusing on four specific walks through Fells Point and Dickeysville and along Charles Street and Greemount Avenue. Some well-known locals, like Laura Lippman and David Simon, join him on the jaunts. The Baltimore Sun interviewed Bell about how this project came to be. It's a good read, and more proof that the book is sure to serve as a perfect companion for any trip to Charm City.
