Baltimore Book Festival

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and the Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts announce the 20th anniversary of the Baltimore Book Festival, Sept. 25-Sept. 27, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Events take place on West Shore Park and Rash Field, along the 400 blocks of Light Street and Key Highway. The event features 275 nationally renowned, celebrity and regional authors, book signings, readings, panel discussions, workshops, cooking demonstrations, book arts, children’s activities, exhibitors and live music.

New for 2015, the Baltimore Book Festival is a “literary feast with gourmet eats” with food taking center stage with local vendors and cookbook demonstrations. Also new are two stages, the Health & Wellness Stage featuring authors who focus on fitness, health and nutrition and the Inner Harbor Stage presented by Towson University featuring national authors, and the festival’s official bookseller which is the independently owned and operated Ivy Bookshop. All Baltimore Book Festival programming is free. The Baltimore Book Festival is produced by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts. The Afro-American Newspaper is a media partner of the Festival.
