    Occupy the Past
    William Barry was a union organizer for over 20 years. Then, in his words, he “went bad—got married and had kids.” He stayed at home to raise those kids for five years and subsequently landed a spot as the director of labor studies at what was then Dundalk Community College, now Community College of Baltimore County. Barry spent his career there teaching the nuts and bolts of union organizing, but he never had the time or space to do research on the history of the labor movement in Baltimore. Fast forward to the fall of 2011. Barry found himself speaking to a meeting of Occupy Baltimore. We are on hallowed ground, he said, standing at the site of the first “occupy Baltimore”—this one back in 1877. That’s when workers at the B&O Railroad carried out the first national strike. Barry learned that night that very few people had ever even heard of this great event in Baltimore’s history, and with the space and time of retirement, he has written “The 1877 Railroad Strike in Baltimore” to tell this story that has been lost in the deepest recesses of the B&O Railroad Museum’s archives.

    World Book Night Pre-Party at Atomic Books

    April 23 is Shakespeare's birthday and, in a twist like that of Jefferson and Adams both dying on July 4, the day that the Bard and Miguel de Cervantes both died. Partly for these reasons it is also World Book Night, a celebration of the pleasures of...
