March 29 at the Windup Space: Margaret Talbot, Angela Pelster-Wiebe, and Readings of Work by Maryland Inmates

On March 29 at 5:00 pm, we’re going to have an interesting mix — and a full slate!  First, we’re privileged to have essayist Margaret Talbot, a staff writer at The New Yorker, reading.  Then Angela Pelster-Wiebe, a local writer with a new book of essays on trees coming out.

For the second half of the reading, New Mercury is privileged to feature readings of work by inmates of Maryland prisons: Arlando Jones (author of Eager Street: Life on the Corner and Behind Bars), along with Charles Doyle and Vincent Greco (both currently at Maryland Correctional Institute). Deborah Rudacille, co-founder and co-host, is off the hook this month — she’ll be at her daughter’s wedding — so MICA professor Mikita Brottman – currently working on a book about teaching literature to prisoners — will be stepping in as cohost. We look forward to seeing you.
