Another year, another book festival visits our grande ol’ city of Baltimore. The Baltimore Book Festival will be at the Baltimore Inner Harbor from Friday, September 26, 2014 to Sunday, September 28, 2014. Admission is absolute free, so even if you’re just now hearing about it, you can still attend!
The festival will be featuring a large variety of locally and nationally acclaimed writers, including poet Leslie Harrison (Displacement, Before the Door of God), Catherine Asaro (The Ruby Dice), Rafael Alvarez (Tales from the Holy Land), and many more. There will also be a wide variety of exhibitors and booksellers in attendance. Check out the full list of participants here.
Readings take place most of the day, but you can also get more involved in the literary community yourself by visiting the various meet and greets, where you can chat with some of your favorite authors and ask where they got started. A very exciting appearance will be made by We Need Diverse Books, the organization striving to increase diversity in the literary world. Also, for you lovers of the less traditional forms of literature, the Baltimore Book Festival is not only home to the lovers of novels, but also welcomes those interested in comics and graphic novels at their Charm City Comic Book Pavilion, sponsored by Third Eye Comics.
Stop by the event website for more details, and I hope to see you there!
