Two Book Fests, Hundreds of Events, and a Video

The last weekend of September will be a book-blast. Two big book festivals, three fulfilling days.

The National Book Festival takes place on the National Mall in Washington DC on September 22 and 23, and it features such notables as T.C. Boyle, Jeffrey Eugenides, Geraldine Brooks, Stephen L. Carter, Patricia Cornwell, Michael Connelly, and Jewel.

The Baltimore Book Festival takes place on September 28, 29, and 30 at Mt. Vernon Place and features such authors as Emily Griffin, Laura Lippman, Kate Dolan, Joya Fields, Michael Kimball, Kevin O’Malley, Marion Winik, and Justin Sirois.

And be sure not to miss Lit & Art at the Baltimore Book Festival on Sunday, September 30 at 2:30 p.m. Featured authors include Bathsheba Monk, Jessica Anya Blau, Charles Rammelkamp, Fernando Quijano III, and Nancy Greene with music by Goodloe Byron and original art by Manzar. Hosted by Eric D. Goodman and Nitin Jagdish, the event takes place at the CityLit Stage and promises to be one literary-packed hour.
