July 13, 2009 – Hour 1

Author John Pipkin grew up in Baltimore.  He recently had his first novel published, a work of historical fiction using Henry David Thoreau as the main character called Woodsburner.  He joins us for the first part of the hour to discuss his book.

Then, we take a trip to Druid Hill Park, where a group called the Druid Hill Park Players formed around the basketball courts, offering mentoring to younger players and providing informal oversight of the courts and the park.  We’ll talk with Orrin Webb, CEO and founder of the Park Players, and Michael Marks, Co-founder and Director of the Park Players.

Read more about Orrin Webb and the Druid Hill Park Players in Urbanite Magazine this month.
