Bloggers at the Festival

One of the things that has kept me busy lately is the upcoming Baltimore Book Festival (BBF), Sept. 24-26, 2010.


I've worked with the Festival in the past to bring more attention to book clubs and this year I'm branching out.  Not only will I moderate a panel on book clubs but I will also moderate a panel on book blogging!  This is the first time the BBF planners have reached out to the blogging community and I'm working hard to make this endeavor a success.


On Sunday, Sept. 26 at 1pm I'm bringing together 5 fantastic bloggers to discuss the amazing book blogging community.  My panelists are Nicole @ Linus's Blanket, Candace @ Beth Fish Reads, Celeste @ Reading Local: Baltimore, Dave @ Read Street, and Serena @ Savvy Verse and Wit.  That's one rockin' panel, right?!

More details will come over the next few weeks but for those in the local area, mark your calendars now - I'd love to see you at the Festival!

Sounds like a great panel!

Very cool panel. I wish I could go. Have fun! And be sure to let us know how it goes.

Oh, wow, that definitely looks like a great panel. We're actually going to be in Baltimore the weekend BEFORE the festival, but maybe there might be a slight possibility of me coming down for the day to hear your session .... let me see what I can do.

Sarah G said...

That's the same weekend as the National Book Festival! I'll be attending that one, hopefully, but I look forward to reading your reports from Baltimore.

Serena said...

I cannot wait for the panel, even if I am nervous. I've only been to the Baltimore Book Festival once, but it was fun

Andi said...

Cool! It promises to be a great panel.

Cyndel said...

Last year's festival was my first one! I was still new to the area, so I wasn't sure how to get the best out of it. Hopefully I can make it both of your panels! I need help with both of those as I want to incorporate books into my blog and join/start a book club.

Hi--we met at BBC! Thanks for the tip on your panel, I hope to be there in the audience!

I am looking forward to BBF and both f your panels!

bermudaonion - I agree - those are some fabulous bloggers!

softdrink & Suey - too bad you aren't closer, I'd love to see you in the audience. :)

Melissa - That would be great! I'm also moderating a book club panel at 3pm that day. Keep me posted on your schedule - it would be great to see you again.

Sarah G - Yeah, both Festivals are the same weekend each year. But the great thing about Baltimore is that it has a 3 day event - any chance you can make it out here on Sunday?

Serena - You'll do a great job, don't worry!

Andi - Thanks. :)

Cyndel - Please introduce yourself to me when you're there - I'd love to meet you! Oh, and the book club panel will be at 3pm that same afternoon.

Alma - I remember you! Looking forward to seeing you again. :)

Nicole - I'm so excited that you're coming down - it will be great to see you again.
