Get Lit This Weekend

Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Get lit! (Literature, that is.)

This weekend’s literary offerings are fully stocked.

On Saturday, check out the fifth annual CityLit Festival. It takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Enoch Pratt Library in downtown Baltimore and features something for everyone. Featured guests include Afaa Michael Weaver, Dr. Ben Carson, Laura Lippman, and authors featured in the upcoming Freshly Squeezed anthology.

The Freshly Squeezed anthology reading takes place at 3:30 at the CityLit Festival. Featured authors reading their work will include Rick Connor, Fernando Quijano III, Nicole Walton, Tamara Keurejian, Barbara Friedland, Holly Myers, Mare Cromwell, Eric D. Goodman, Nancy O. Greene, and Leo Horrigan. The reading – like the festival – is free and open to the public.

And if that doesn’t fill your day, there’s another reading well worth attending after the festival ends. Head over to the Minas gallery in Hampden for the next 510 reading. The event begins at 5 p.m. and features fiction readings by authors Michael Kimball, Maude Casey, and Michael Downs.

Finally, consider Sunday’s Lit & Art at the Watermark event your dessert after a well-rounded meal. Authors reading from their work include Caryn Coyle, Lauren Beth Eisenberg, Eric D. Goodman, Nitin Jagdish, Eric Kestler, Cliff Lynn, Deanna Nikaido, and Nancy O. Greene.

Started in October 2007, the Lit and Art series provides a unique opportunity to sample a variety of artistic sensibilities. Complimentary wine and refreshments will be served.

The Watermark Gallery is located in the Bank of America Center, Skywalk Level, right across from the Inner Harbor, at 100 S. Charles Street, Baltimore, Maryland. The phone number is (410) 547-0452.

All of these events are free and open to the public.
