From the harbor to the hills, “Smile, Hon, You’re in Baltimore!” collects the tales of those on whom Mobtown has left her indelible mark. Polished, professional essays; barroom sermons delivered from the sanctity of a favorite stool; the poet’s fleeting sentiment, captured in both word and snapshot – “Smile, Hon” offers a slice of Baltimore as told by Baltimore, presented with the time-honored DIY accessibility of a limited-run, handcrafted zine.

“[I]ndispensible reading for anyone who appreciates and loves the city, warts and all.” - BALTIMORE MAGAZINE

“[S]urprisingly fascinating, consistently absurd, and often weird as hell…Baltimore at its bizarre best.” - BALTIMORE CITY PAPER

~ A 2007 UTNE Independent Press Award Nominee ~
