Get Ready for the Festivities

What many people in the local literary community refer to as our “literary new year” will be here before you know it: The Baltimore Book Festival takes place on the weekend of September 25, 26 and 27 and offers a little bit of lit for everyone. The event is free and fun!

Tens of thousands of people visit the Baltimore Book Festival each year—it’s the largest celebration of the literary arts in the mid-Atlantic region. All of the regulars will be there: Maryland Writers’ Association, CityLit Project, Creative Café, Literary Salon, Children’s Bookstore Stage, and more!

This year's authors include Buzz Aldrin, Gwen Ifill, Ralph Nader, Chris Gardner, Amiri Baraka, Ingrid Hoffmann, Farai Chideya, Maureen McCormick, Dale DeGroff, Lourdes Castro, Adam Ried, Mordicai Gerstein and James Warhola.

The regular “Lit & Art at the Watermark” reading series will bring fiction, poetry, non-fiction, live music, original artwork, and refreshments to the Creative Café on Sunday. And you’ll find copies of Flightless Goose for sale at the tent of the Maryland Writer’s Association.

Learn more about the Baltimore Book Festival and all it has to offer at their official website.
