Welcome to an unexpected window on Maryland’s past. Author Ross Jones will sign copies of his groundbreaking biography, "Elisabeth Gilman: Crusader for Justice," at The Greyhound in Berlin, on Friday, March 29, from 12 noon – 3 pm. Before anyone ever heard of “AOC” – before there was such a thing as “Bernie Bros” – Baltimore was fascinated by its own home grown Socialist, Elisabeth Gilman. Daughter of founding Johns Hopkins University president Daniel Coit Gilman, “Miss Lizzie” grew up in high society but became a committed Socialist, running spirited campaigns for US senator, governor, mayor, and even sheriff. Come meet the author, hear the whole story and get your signed copy.
