Judith Krummeck: Book Launch For THE DECEIVED ONES (With Tom Hall)

The Ivy Bookshop is thrilled to host the book launch for Judith Krummeck’s debut novel, THE DECEIVED ONES! Join us for an evening on the patio where you’ll hear from Krummeck along with host of Midday on WYPR, Tom Hall. A novel of music and migration, with echoes of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, THE DECEIVED ONES is sure to capture your heart and mind in its comedy of errors with real stakes.

Judith Krummeck is a writer, broadcaster, and immigrant living in Baltimore. She is the evening drive-time host for the classical music station, WBJC, and she holds an MFA in Creative Writing & Publishing Arts. Her debut novel, The Deceived Ones, is forthcoming in May, 2024. Her biographical memoir, Old New Worlds, was a finalist in the 2020 Next Generation Indie Book Awards and the 14th Annual National Indie Excellence® Awards. Previously, she published a memoir-in-essays, Beyond the Baobab, about her immigrant experience. Her screenplay of André Brink’s Booker-nominated novel, Philida, is in development in South Africa.

Tom is also the Host of What Are You Reading? on WYPR. He has also hosted the Maryland Morning Screen Test, and the WYPR/MD Film Festival Spotlight Series. In 2006, as the Music Director of the Baltimore Choral Arts Society, Tom received an Emmy Award for Christmas with Choral Arts, a special that aired on WMAR television, the ABC affiliate in Maryland, for 21 years. He has been a guest co-host of Maryland Public Television’s Art Works, and in 2007, he was named “Best New Broadcast Journalist” by the Maryland Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.
