Lit Lights Up the Region this Weekend

If you love literature, this weekend is made for you. The National Book Festival runs all day on Saturday, October 26 on the National Mall in Washington, DC and features some of the nation’s best and most popular writers from John Irving to John Grisham, Julia Alvarez to TimO’Brien. They’ll be talking about books, reading their work, and signing their books.

And, lest your glass be half empty, let the Baltimore Book Festival make it overflow. The Mid-Atlantic region’s largest celebration of the literary arts begins Friday, September 25 and runs through Sunday, September 27. The festival includes writers of all sorts and is a great way to get to know the local literary scene. Be sure to visit the tents of the Maryland Writers Association, CityLit Project, and Creative Café.

I’ll be joining some friends for the Lit and Art at the Watermark reading at the Baltimore Book Festival’s Creative Café on Sunday afternoon from 5 to 6 p.m. The event will include fiction, poetry, nonfiction, memoir, music, and art.

Learn more about the National Book Festival at their website.
