Baltimore CityLit Festival IV

This Saturday, May 12 is the fourth annual CityLit Festival in Baltimore, Maryland.

The CityLit Project and the Enoch Pratt Free Library team up once again to present a day-long celebration of literature for the whole family.

Sheila Dixon, Mayor of Baltimore, and Dr. Carla Hayden, Executive Director of the Pratt Library, will kick off the festival at 10:30 a.m. by proclaiming it “CityLit Jewels Day” in Baltimore. Then they will introduce author Connie Briscoe and photographer Michael Cunningham, who will share stories and images from their book Jewels: 50 Phenomenal Black Women Over 50.

“CityLit Festival is one of my favorite days of the year,” said Dr. Hayden. “The entire library is buzzing with literally something for everyone, from kids to adults, poets to Pulitzer Prize winners.”

Come and meet local writers, poets, magazine editors, book publishers, and other literary types at this year’s day-long event. While you’re there, bring along a few pages of your own writing for a quick critique by Write Here Write Now’s Christine Stewart.

And be sure to thank Gregg Wilhelm of the CityLit Project for getting the party started!
