When I meet a DC native these days, I often ask if they are familiar with the books of George Pelecanos. Considering he's written over 20 crime novels all set on the streets of "real" DC, I'm kind of surprised if I get a blank look when I mention his name. I doubt there's a dead end in Southwest or a deer path in Rock Creek Park that George hasn't prowled.
This Sunday Kensington is closing off a street of two to celebrate the Day of the Book with authors, books, music and more. Catch George reading with back ground music provided by his friends The Nighthawks at 3 p.m.
