The last weekend of September, Baltimore's Mount Vernon Place will host the must-see event for anyone who loves books and music – the 13th annual Baltimore Book Festival. With our Washington Monument overlooking the festival site, and the surrounding parks and cobblestone streets, it's the perfect place to spend the weekend.
Friday: 5 - 9 pm
Saturday and Sunday : 11 am - 7 pm
600 Block North Charles Street
Baltimore, MD 21201
The weather's going to be clear and beautiful as more than 200 authors appear to meet fans and sign their books. The festival features 100+ exhibitors and booksellers, non-stop readings on eight stages, cooking demos by celebrity chefs, poetry readings and workshops, panel discussions, walking tours, storytellers and hands-on projects for kids, street theater, live music, and, of course, plenty of food, beer and wine.
And…it's FREE. The festival is held outdoors in tents, is open to the public, and is handicapped accessible.
I'll be there this Saturday, September 27, talking about my book, of course. Between 11:00 and 1:00 you can find me with my publisher, Peg Silloway, at the Midatlantic Independent Publishers Association booth (E15). We'll also be checking in at the Live Baltimore Home Center booth for the latest on how they continue to encourage and support buying into and living in Baltimore City.
See you Saturday!
