Book Fest Season Begins

This Saturday, the Book Festival Season kicks off with the 13th annual National Book Festival on the National Mall in DC. Library of Congress has brought in some big names this year, including Margaret Atwood, Don DeLillo, Thomas Keneally, Khaled Hosseini, Christopher Buckley, Terry McMillan, and Linda Ronstadt to name just a few.

The National Book Festival takes place this Saturday and Sunday. Get a full schedule of events and participating artists at www.loc.gov/bookfest/information

And for people in Baltimore and vicinity, the following weekend is our literary new year! The Baltimore Book Festival takes place Friday, September 27 to Sunday September 29 around Baltimore’s Washington Monument in Mt. Vernon. On Sunday at 1:30, the CityLit Stage presents Lit & Art, featuring Jessica Anya Blau, Bathsheba Monk, Nitin Jagdish, Eric D. Goodman, Jacob Panic, Manzar, and host Aaron Henkin of WYPR’s The Signal. You won’t want to miss it.
