Join us for a book discussion and signing by Baltimore's own D. Watkins. D. is a professor of Creative Writing at the University of Baltimore and founder of the BMORE Writers Project. His latest book,The Cook Up, is a riveting memoir that tells the story of a brilliant young man with a bright future who finds himself taking the mantel of his deceased brother’s crack empire. D.’s tale is equally terrifying and hilarious, inspiring and heartbreaking, and offers a rare glimpse into the mentality of a person who has escaped many hells.
“D. Watkins has arrived.” – David Simon, creator of HBO’s The Wire
