Hunter S. Thompson -- who coined the phrase "gonzo journalism" to describe his own uniquely participatory school of writing -- will speak tonight at Max's on Broadway, 735 South Broadway.
In two appearances scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m., Mr. Thompson will speak on "Fear and Loathing in Baltimore." The planned format is an introductory talk followed by questions and answers.
