Grab your lunch at the festival and swing by the CityLit Stage for dessert.  Chat with Peachy Dixon, author of A Peachy Life, which recounts how her Italian-Catholic upbringing in Highlandtown spiraled downward upon marrying an abusive, heroin-addicted man. In the late 1960s, Peachy made the brave decision to leave her husband and supported her children through a series of waitressing jobs at famous Baltimore restaurants such as Johnny Unitas’ Golden Arm, Haussner’s and her current job at Sabatino's in Little Italy.
