Gregg Wilhelm is executive director of CityLit Project, which presents festivals, conducts workshops and inspires youth to enjoy reading and writing. He founded the nonprofit in 2004 and hopes he has contributed to the area's resurgent literary-arts scene. Wilhelm also teaches book publishing courses at his alma mater, Loyola College. He and his wife live near Patterson Park. CityLit will present a free screening and discussion of the documentary Helvetica as part of Free Fall Baltimore tonight at 6 at the Charles Theatre.
