This weekend, the Baltimore Book Festival will surround the Inner Harbor with book- and reading-related activities. The food options have been expanded (I hear rumors of lobster rolls), and all vendors will be local and sustainably sourced. Even the demos will be sourced from the Baltimore Farmers Market.
The “Foodie Hot Spots” (their phrase, not mine!) will be spread out across the festival, and in addition to the demo stage, there will be programs at nearby venues, such as the McCormick store at the Inner Harbor and the Constellation.
Geppi’s Entertainment Museum is a sponsor. Expect superheroes to challenge local celebrities like Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. She triumphed over Rubber Chicken-Man to pose with Seton Rossini, the (local) author of Sweet Envy, a book full of creative dessert ideas. Watch for my review of it soon.
Meanwhile, I’ll be enjoying both the cooking and science fiction programs. Oh, and one of my favorite mystery writers, Laura Lippman – she’ll be there too.
