Baltimore Book Festival -- Reading, music and FREE beer

The 15th annual Baltimore Book Festival welcomes more than 225 celebrity, nationally known and local authors including Holly Robinson Peete, Rodney Peete, Barbara Bradley Hagerty, Nigel Barker, Ree Drummond, Michele Norris, Sherri Sheppard, Judge Glenda Hatchett, Jesse Ventura, Warrent St. John, Amy Dickinson ("Ask Amy") and Matt & Ted Lee to historic Mount Vernon Square.

The event runs Sept. 24-26. Personal interaction between readers and authors is the hallmark of our festival. But the Baltimore Book Festival is a festival in every sense. It offers food, musical performances by local and regional acts, hands-on activities for the children, area restaurants and attractions, picnic tables for resting and more.


From 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. stop by the CityLit Tent, next to the Monument in Mt. Vernon (looking north on Charles, it's usually about 3 o'clock on the circle) for a reading from writers from local 'Zine Smile, Hon -- You're in Baltimore.

Readers to include EARL CROWN; E. DOYLE-GILLESPIE; SHARON GOLDNER; FERNANDO QUIJANO III; WILLIAM P. TANDY; (and me!) LISA WISEMAN

Music by The Dirty Marmaduke Flute Squad

    A few of my meetup groups are going this night, so I will try to mingle with them all! Sounds fun - my first time there.

    Is the Baltimore Book Festival serving as the monthly meeting for September, or will there still be a regular monthly meeting as well?
