Enjoy Summer by Binge Watching Movies and Reading a Baltimore-Born Beach Book

Saturday was the first day of summer and already it’s “Back to School” season!  From appalling media reports we learned that retailers are rolling out supplies for the fall.  Just be sure your kids don’t grow over the summer, or they may be mighty uncomfortable in that new pair of school jeans come September.
 
While we’d like to slow things down here a little, everyone in the cultural community is full tilt into fall 2014. Seasons have been announced, exhibition schedules are locked in, and yes the gala/fundraising calendars for as far ahead as spring 2015 are being booked. Make sure you take a look at GBCA’s upcoming events schedule to keep up with summer fun and see what’s in store for the rest of the year.  In just a few days, GBCA will unveil a complete facelift of the BaltimoreFunGuide.com.  On Thursday when it lands, you can be among the first to explore our new highly searchable, responsive, and comprehensive guide to the region’s extraordinary cultural offerings.  More to come!
 
In the meantime, enjoy summer by binge watching a little Barry Levinson, Matt Porterfield and John Waters.  The nostalgic Ping Pong Summer is up and available on Netflix. Also, break out those Baltimore-born beach books. Looking for some excellent summer reading?  Check out Baltimore area writers from the serious to the comedic –Jen Michalski, Wes Moore, Taylor Branch, Marion Winik, Laura Lipman, Sujata Massey, and Michael Salcman, just to name a few.
 
And speaking of books, congratulations to CityLit who celebrates ten great years at its anniversary event tomorrow evening.
 
Best,
Jeannie
