Happy 133rd, Mr Mencken!


Join the Friends in celebrating Mr Mencken’s 133rd birthday at his house on 1524 Hollins St on Sunday, September 8, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

H. L. Mencken was born September 12, 1880 and we are celebrating his birthday a few days early to coincide with Mencken Weekend. The house and garden will be open and light fare will be served. Beer and wine will be available for a modest amount. The highlight of the occasion will be cake (with candles, though not 133 of them) served in his beloved garden.

If you plan to attend the birthday celebration, you may also consider attending the Mencken Day celebration at the Enoch Pratt Free Library the day before, on Saturday, September 7, 2013.
