Friends & supporters, circumstances have reached the point where we have to change gears on our beloved Gaithersburg Book Festival.
We will not be coming together – at least face to face – on May 16th for GBF.
HOWEVER, having spent the last year putting together a *fantastic* lineup of authors, books, workshops, and other special programming, we are going to be looking at creative ways to deliver some of that programming to you and connect you with some of those authors, virtually, where we can.
Please stay tuned to this website, our Facebook and Twitter accounts, and our newsletter for announcements and opportunities.
The Gaithersburg Book Festival is a free annual celebration of great books and great writing that has made its mark as one of the nation’s top literary events. More than 100 featured best-selling and award-winning authors – including MT Anderson, Tom Angleberger, Meg Waite Clayton, E.J. Dionne, John Feinstein, Tom and Lorenzo (Tom Fitzgerald and Lorenzo Marquez), Deborah Heiligman, David Ignatius, Jonathan Karl, Erin Entrada Kelly and more – will participate in panel discussions and book signings at the festival on May 16, 2020. Other activities include free, interactive writing workshops, a Children’s Village, literary exhibitors, the Brew and Vine Cafe featuring live entertainment, and onsite book sales by Politics & Prose. Admission, parking and accessible shuttle buses from Shady Grove Metro and Lakeforest Mall are FREE.
