The Gaithersburg Book Festival is a hidden gem in Montgomery County. It's a wonderful day of listening and meeting authors and hearing about places and ideas that stimulate your imagination! As the date gets closer, I'll set a time and meeting place. Come on and join us...it's a great way to spend a day!

    Somebody mentioned this book within the last few months and here's an article in the Gazette about the author when she'll be at the festival this weekend. I think that's one I'll have to see!!! Writer tells Fitzgeralds’ story though Zelda’s eyes in latest book.

    Hello everyone who is going to the Gaithersburg Book Festival this Saturday! How's this for a plan...first, get there when you want (look at the website to see when activities you want to attend are happening; it's only one day, spread out from 10am to 6pm). If you want to meet up with anyone from book club, meet at the front door to the Politics and Prose Book Store tent at noon. I'll be there at that time and if you want to grab a bite to eat, we can do it then. There is a map on the site, located at http://gaithersburgbookfestival.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/GBF-Map-2013.pdf. I hope that you'll come out and enjoy this free event...it's a lot of fun and you get to listen to a large array of authors throughout the day.

    If you are there, but busy during the noon hour with a good lecture, give me a call and I'll meet up with after that. I hope to be there most of the day, as long as the weather is good! My cell is[masked]-8935. Let me know if you have questions!
