The Park at 14th on May 30th, 2019

Doors open at 5:00 pm

The Day of the Book Festival has grown from a neighborhood event to an international celebration that draws thousands of visitors and truly offers something for everyone. They have an amazing array of literary, musical and artistic talent lined up for this year. You'll see kids and adults wander up and down the closed-off streets of Kensington as they talk with authors, enjoy the bands, and meet the artists. Most exciting to me is that in the increasingly digitized world, the festival demonstrates that writing and reading are alive and well!

Big News from Mourning Knows!

The wait is over...

Introducing "Dreams Interrupted: 4th and Long" The Novel


After 6 years of a highly anticipated debut release of his memoir "Dreams Interrupted", Glen's talent at writing surpassed his own expectation. In 2016, his ability to capture moments from the past and share them in a unique and heartfelt way caught the eyes and ears of several professional literary agents, television talk shows and publications. After attempting to partner with the NCAA to inform collegiate athletes of the severe mentally deteriorating potential that life as an ex college football player can have on oneself, Glen stopped his effort to collaborate and decided to spread his powerful messages on his own terms. After the initial release of "Dreams Interrupted" in April of 2016,  it was clear that his work was missing a key component. Without further a due, Glen shares his full story "Dreams Interrupted: 4th and Long" the official Novel, with the rest of the world. "What do you do when you can no longer dream without interruption? Sit back and enjoy the story. 



Towson University host Glen Mourning as their pre-season motivational Guest Speaker 

On August 7th, the journey for incoming freshmen scholar athletes at many universities across the country will begin. With each new class of collegiate athletes comes a tradition of responsibility to embrace the challenges and opportunity that they will be privileged to experience. It is no coincidence that those that have the most success, are also the ones who understand and commit to the idea that life is precious and at any moment your time to take the lead can present itself. When the time comes, will you be prepared for greatness? The choice is yours.  On August 7th, The Towson Tigers will be inviting Glen Mourning to join the Towson Football family as he will lead a motivational conversation centered around adulthood, accountability, trust and learning to use life lessons to secure a successful future.
