Check Out the Baltimore Book Fest

Looks like the Baltimore Book Festival—the Mid-Atlantic’s largest celebration of the literary arts—already has a library full of events on the schedule. It takes place September 23, 24, and 25 from noon to 8 p.m. at Mt. Vernon Place. Take a look at www.baltimorebookfestival.com.

There are more than 100 authors and participants on this year’s lineup, including Sherman Alexie, Jacquelyn Mitchard, Terry McMillian, Laura Lippman, Susi Wyss, and many others. You can see the complete lineup here:


I’ll be busy with two gigs at this year’s book fest.

On Saturday evening, stop by as the Lit & Art reading series presents an expanded program, Lit & Art & You, featuring fiction, poetry, nonfiction, memoir, live music, original art, open mic, and refreshments. It takes place from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Baltimore Free School Lit + Language Tent. See all of Saturday’s events at the following link.


On Sunday I’ll join Susi Wyss at the CityLit Stage to talk about Novel in Stories as a form. Susi will read from The Civilized World and I’ll read from Tracks. The reading and discussion takes place from 3 to 4 p.m. Learn more about it and all of Sunday’s events at this link.


Whether you can make one of my gigs, be sure to enjoy part of the Baltimore Book Festival where you’ll find books, readings, discussions, plays, food, drinks, music, and lots of literary fun. See you there!
