Infinity’s Kitchen Late Show

The Infinity’s Kitchen Late Show is a quarterly literary reading featuring the work of new and interesting writers from Baltimore and beyond. Each show includes discussions of the performers and their work, in a format that resembles a late night talk show. There may even be some fun gags thrown in, for good measure.
