Book lovers - help us keep the Baltimore Book Festival FREE!

"…The Baltimore Book Festival is like a festive homecoming--a celebration of not just ideas and imagination, but of life itself...all those different people, young and old, male and female, of different ethnicities gathering to celebrate books, and in doing so celebrating being human.”    -Azar Nafisi, author of “Reading Lolita in Tehran”

“The Book Festival makes literature and reading a shared, social event. You get to meet people who share the same love of a book you do, who you’d never meet otherwise.”   -Festival Attendee


“The festival is such a wonderful way to celebrate Baltimore and see its best, celebrate its literary tradition and heritage.”   -  Festival Attendee
