Fiction! Poetry! Live Music! Original Art! Lit & Art at the Baltimore Book Festival’s CityLit Stage

The Baltimore Book Festival kicks off this Friday, September 27 and runs through Sunday, September 29.
Join the Smile Hon You’re In Baltimore crowd on Friday night at the CityLit Tent where they’ll kick off the festival with the release party and reading of the latest issue. The Occupational Hazards issue features such authors as D.R. Belz, Fernando Quijano III, Earl Crown, Caryn Coyle, Eric D. Goodman, Jeffrey Shipley, and more! Plus live music and beer. It all starts Friday at 6 p.m. at the CityLit Stage. Pick up your copy there.
And be sure to join us at 1:30 on September 29 at the Baltimore Book Festival’s CityLit Stage for the Lit and Art Reading Series. NPR’s Aaron Henkin of The Signal emcees the event, which features original art by world-renowned artist Manzar, live banjo by Pop-Grass star Jacob Panic, and original readings by Jessica Anya Blau, Eric D. Goodman, and Nitin Jagdish, and Bathsheba Monk.
Then … You don’t want to miss the next big event at The Watermark Gallery during Baltimore Literary Arts Week. Join us on Sunday, October 13 from 2 to 5 p.m. for Lit & Art at the Watermark, 100 S. Charles St., across from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Original art by Manzar; original songs by Goodloe Byron; readings by Lauren Eisenberg Davis, D.R. Belz, and Barbara Friedland; an exciting presentation by Tom Glenn on the fall of Saigon (he was there as it happened); and a special musical performance by National Book Award nominee Madison Smartt Bell. Did we mention free wine and refreshments?
But first … we’ll see you at 1:30 on September 29 at the Baltimore Book Festival’s CityLit Stage.
We look forward to seeing you there!
