Gaithersburg Book Festival Registration Begins Sat., May 1st


Gaithersburg Book Festival to Present Free Virtual Writing Workshops for Adults, Teens and Children on May 8 and 15

The Gaithersburg Book Festival, which has grown in short time to become one of the Washington area’s top book festivals, will be a virtual event for the second straight year due to the COVID-19 health crisis. However, the online event will again be filled with written words covering a wide range of categories. In addition, the Festival will offer a variety of free workshops for readers and writers of all ages.

Founded in 2010, the Gaithersburg Book Festival is a celebration of books, writers and literary excellence. The 2021 Festival will take place virtually throughout the month of May, featuring author appearances, panel discussions and writing workshops. The festival also will host author events in Montgomery County throughout the year as a way to encourage continued appreciation for all things literary..

The workshops will take place via Zoom throughout the day on Saturdays, May 8 and 15. Spaces are limited. Registration opens at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 1. Links to register are located on the Gaithersburg Book Festival website at

I wish that I enjoyed reading more than I do.  I remember being excited about the book fair when I was a kid, not sure what lead to my disinterest though.

Good morning, Roy... I love book fairs. Won't it be nice if next year this one won't need to be virtual?

Well virtual is better than no festival at all I guess Roy.  Workshops through Zoom should be welcomed.

Books are still the future of our youth.  All my grandkids since before they could walk were read to each night.  Now they love to read. Make it the BEST Wednesday, and thanks again for posting this wonderful Blog.  Bill Salvatore

Glad the book fair is still continuing, and we would rather it be live!  For both of us, Zoom is a poor substitute,  just an opinion from us.  A

Books have become constant companions for many during this pandemic, Roy.  I can imagine the Gaithersburg book festival will be popular.

I wish I had visited this festival! I hope such events will become more popular, and I'll have a chance to go to one of them, I love books and reading! Another thing is when it comes to writing, I never liked it, and when I need to write a college paper, I usually ask guys from They never failed the job, and always delivered excellent papers on time. By the way, the quality of their papers is really high, while the price is average.
