The Baltimore Book Festival: Clarinda Harriss, the Ivy Bookshop, CityLit, and more!

This weekend, Baltimore celebrates all things literature with the annual Baltimore Book Festival, held in the Inner Harbor.

BrickHouse Books’ Director and Editor-in-Chief, Clarinda Harriss, will read from The White Rail on Sunday, September 24th at 4:30pm. She will appear at the Inner Harbor Stage (by the Visitor Center) as part of the Lit & Art Reading Series.

While you’re there, stop by one of BHB’s favorite haunts, the Ivy Bookshop! The Ivy Bookshop is the official bookseller for the festival, and is a beloved independent retailer for many BHB titles.

If you’re looking to grow as a writer, learn more about the intersection of social activism and the literary arts, or just listen to great music and poetry, head to the CityLit Project stage! This year’s lineup is incredible!

With so many great events and exhibitors, it’s an event you won’t want to miss. We’ll see you there!

CityLit 2015: “Most important festival ever”

BrickHouse Books is proud to have been part of the twelfth annual CityLit Festival on May 2.  It took place at the Enoch Pratt Free Library and was the only event in the city that day not to have been canceled due to the rally at City Hall.  http://citylitproject.org/index.cfm?page=news&newsid=157

BhB had a table and our own Clarinda Harriss read a poem as part of the panel honoring Michael Salcman’s new anthology, POETRY IN MEDICINE.

CityLit Project and Creative Alliance Present a CityLit WriteShop

Smile! Your Mind is a Candid Camera (Literary Nonfiction)

If all art is a reflection on the human condition, then literary nonfiction, especially personal essays and memoir writing, are a paramount art. Our stories can illuminate truths about our community, our cultures, and mankind. For this personal essay writing course, we’ll discuss what’s happened in our lives and what we’ve witnessed, and how that affects our stories. Literary journal editor and well-published literary nonfiction author, Dario DiBattista, will foster these conversations and lead the course.

The course will run from 7 to 9 p.m. March 21, March 28, April 4, and April 11.
