Works in Progress at Baltimore Book Festival

Be the first to hear the “works in progress” of ten local authors at the Baltimore Book Festival – the biggest celebration of the literary arts in the Mid-Atlantic region.

This Sunday, September 30, ten members of the Maryland Writers’ Association Baltimore Chapter (MWAB) will read from their work at the Baltimore Book Festivals’s CityLit Tent. The reading takes place at 11 a.m. and features readings by the following local authors:

Edith Goldman;

Michael M. Hughes;

Barbara Friedland;

Jen Michalski;

Mat Gill;

Lalita Noronha;

Lauren Eisenberg Davis;

Kimberly Williams;

Christine Stewart; and

Eric D. Goodman.

After the reading, hang around for the Festival's many other literary, musical, and culinary treats. Check out authors Rafael Alvarez (on Saturday) and Stephen Hunter (on Sunday). The CityLit Tent has a smashing lineup all weekend long, and there are used book dealers, authors signing their works (including Mat Gill and Paul Lagasse), poetry readings, activities for the kids, and more.

C-SPAN usually sends a camera crew to cover the event, so who knows, youmight even have your big break too!

The Maryland Writers Association will have a booth across from the CityLit tent where you can get information on the MWA. You can even register as a member on site.

Many thanks to Gregg Wilhelm of the CityLit Project and Paul Lagasse of the MWAB for organizing this and other events at the Baltimore Book Festival.
