A 17th century land grant formerly known as Planter's Paradise, is now the setting for 2316 Bauernschmidt Drive in Baltimore County. Here, on property once owned by Baltimore philanthropist Enoch Pratt, sits a charming example of a rural frame-and-clapboard mansion designed in the Italianate style. This mansion was built in 1909 by Agnes and Frederick Bauernschmidt, who owned a brewing company in Baltimore, as their summer home just blocks from the Middle River. Now on the market for $995,000, this manor house on three-quarters of an acre showcases a three-sided wrap-around porch with columns that support a four-sided second-story balcony.

"Jack" Young asked library officials to return in 90 days to discuss their plan to correct the accounting troubles. Young said while he is a "big supporter of the library system," he is concerned, especially since some of the problems have continued for several years.

If you're a regular attendee at the author appearances at the Enoch Pratt Free Library, you've seen a fair share of geniuses. Junot Diaz and Dinaw Mengestu -- who today received "genius" grants from the MacArthur Foundation -- have appeared in recent years at the Pratt. Diaz entertained a packed auditorium at the 2009 CityLit Festival, and it was gratifying to see so many young faces in the crowd, eager to hear his words. He is best known for " The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao," and more recently released " This Is How You Lose Her . " Mengestu, who lives in Washington, appeared at the Pratt in October, 2010, as Gregg Wilhelm of the CityLit Project reminded me. Mengestu's novel, " The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears," was among the books considered by the One Maryland One Book program as it looked for a work that outlined the immigrant experience.

Fans of Stieg Larsson's Millenium trilogy will get a closer look at the late author Wednesday, when long-time companion Eva Gabrielsson appears at the Enoch Pratt Free Library to discuss her book "There Are Things I Want You to Know. " The book is part-memoir, part-polemic against Swedish inheritance laws, which denied her a part of the fortune generated by "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and Larsson's other books.
