Baltimore County

Laura Lippman

Author Laura Lippman says her favorite Orioles moment "has to be meeting Brooks Robinson in the Brass Elephant Bar. It was 2003 and I was there with [former Sun reporter] Rob Hiaasen, who truth be told, recognized #5 before I did. Now I have met a lot of famous people, but only a few have reduced me to simpering fan girl. (The writers Daniel Woodrell and S.E. Hinton would be among those.) I could barely speak when I met Brooks. It happened that I had a so-called ARC (advanced reading copy) of my next book and Brooks signed my book to me. It sits above my desk to this day."
