The second annual Gaithersburg Book Festival will be held on May 21, 2011, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., on the grounds of Gaithersburg City Hall. Admission is free and, once again, there will truly be something for everyone! Highlights include:
For readers, the Festival will feature appearances, discussions, and book signings by more than 70 authors, including award winners (Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, Newbery Medal, Edgar Award, Peabody Award, etc) and dozens of national best-selling authors.
For writers, and those who aspire to write, there will be workshops going on throughout the day, covering a diversity of topics.
For children of all ages, there’s a Children’s Village, featuring childrens’ authors, stories, activities, arts and crafts, and more.
For poets, singer/songwriters – and the people who love them – there’s a Coffee House where you can sit down, take a load off and have a great cup of coffee while you enjoy song and verse.
On site book sales from Barnes & Noble (featuring the books of the Festival's presenting authors) and Friends of the Library (used books).
Exhibitors will include local authors, publishers, book clubs, and more.
And, of course, come enjoy food, drink, ice cream and more.
