This Weekend’s Baltimore Book Festival

main_logoWho’s going to this year’s Baltimore Book Festival? This year, it’s going to be held at the Inner Harbor due to the restoration of the historic Washington Monument in Mount Vernon. As much as I love the historic area, I always look forward to any chance to be at the Inner Harbor!

* Warning: Parking will be extra crazy on Sunday since there’s a 1:00 Ravens game!

If you’re going and would like to show support for our regional members who will be appearing at this year’s festival, here’s their information:


Our regional illustrator coordinator, Susan Detwiler, will be selling hardcover copies of Fine Life for a Country Mouse on Saturday, September 27th from 1-5 p.m. at the McDonogh booth, near the Science Center. (Click here for more information.)


Jeri Smith-Ready, author of This Side of Salvation and other young adult novels, will be speaking in the Simon & Schuster Children’s Author panel on Sunday, September 28th at 3:00 p.m. at the Literary Salon. (Click here for event details.)

I scanned the schedule for The Authors’ Tent–a marketplace of local and regional authors signing and selling their books–and saw a couple of familiar names from our region:

Authors’ Tent at Bicentennial Plaza

Liz Dejesus, Friday and Sunday; First Frost, Glass Frost, The Jackets, Night Gypsy

Kathy MacMillan, Friday: Little Hands and Big Hands: Children and Adults Signing Together

Katrina Moore, Sunday: So Long, Gnop-Jiye

The full list can be found here.

My apologies to those I might have missed. If you’re also signing books this weekend, please leave your date and location in the comments and I’ll add it to this post!

Hope those who this weekend have a great time!
