Baltimore has long been known as "The City that Reads." And it is true that there is a thriving literary community in city. If you need evidence of this (or just want to have a great day), look no further than this Saturday’s CityLit Festival VI.
If you love books and literature, you won’t want to miss the CityLit Festival
at the Enoch Pratt Free Library, 400 Cathedral Street
. You’ll have the chance to see last year’s winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Literature, Junot Diaz
, and last year’s National Book Award for Poetry winner Mark Doty
. There are sessions on what’s becoming of our book culture, lifelong literature — too much to mention here! Plus, exhibitors will be showing off their books, literary journals, services, and all things bookish in the exhibitors’ hall all day long.
I’ll be there for a session on “first books, new authors
,” and my children’s book, Flightless Goose
, will be in the exhibitor’s hall all day. There really is something for everyone!
Hope to see you there. If you love books, it’s a great way to “get lit” this Saturday.
