Best Book Festival

City Paper

We’re big fans of the Baltimore Book Festival, which is coming a couple weeks from now, but we’re skeptical of the event’s move away from the city’s intellectual hub in Mount Vernon to Canton. For true book lovers, skip the skip the Italian sausage and aluminum-siding booths and wait for the CityLit Festival at Baltimore’s genuine temple to the written word, the Central Enoch Pratt Free Library. The 2014 edition featured James McBride, Wesley Stace, and City Paper’s own Mr. Wrong, Joe MacLeod.
