The ghosts of Crownsville State Hospital, Dan Fesperman’s “The Double Game,” and Nancy Heneson’s “American Apothecaries”

November 16th & 17th, 2012, on The Signal:
We visit a nearly forgotten cemetery on the grounds of the now-shuttered Crownsville State Hospital, where patients buried their own. Historian Janice Hayes-Williams walks us through the gravesite, and tells the story of the institution originally named, ‘The Hospital for the Negro Insane.’ We also talk with Paul Lurz, who worked inside Crownsville for 40 years.
Dan Fesperman talks about his latest book, “The Double Game.” The book has been called a “love letter to the spy novel genre.”
And writer Nancy Heneson remembers a bygone era, when her father worked as a druggist in the first-floor pharmacy of Baltimore’s grand old Altamont Hotel.
