Baltimore Book Festival

Tomorrow I'll be giving out free autographed chapbooks of Eyes of Crow at the Maryland Writers Association booth at the 11th Annual Baltimore Book Festival.

The Festival is hosting over 200 authors, including actor Hill Harper from "CSI: New York," who's here to talk about his new book Letters to a Young Brother: Manifest Your Destinies. Tonight, Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Kate White will be hosting a lively "Ladies Night Out" panel, which sounds like a lot of fun.

The Walters Art Museum one of several places for author talks tomorrow, including Ruby Dee at 4PM. Her new book is called Life Lit by Some Large Vision: Selected Speeches and Writings by Ossie Davis. Sunday will feature author Sebastian Junger, who wrote A Perfect Storm and A Death in Belmont, at 1 PM.

There'll be live music, theatre performances, and food, food, food all weekend, so come on down to Baltimore's beautiful Mount Vernon Plaza, home of the first (and prettiest) Washington Monument.
