Saturday, September 12 is Mencken Day! Come celebrate the legacy and literature of the “Sage of Baltimore” with the Friends of the Johns Hopkins Libraries.

Henry Louis Mencken had a long and distinguished career as a journalist with the Sunpapers. But throughout his lifetime in the newspaper industry, he also worked for magazines as a writer and editor.

The Sheridan Libraries’ new exhibit, “A View of the Parade: H. L. Mencken and American Magazines,” at the George Peabody Library in Mt. Vernon, explores the life of Mencken and the United States through magazines.

Join the Friends of the Johns Hopkins Libraries at the George Peabody Library on September 12 at 4 pm for the exhibition’s opening reception. Please RSVP to Stacie Spence at or 410.516.7943 if you are able to attend.
