Readings at Baltimore Book Festival

Hey, Baltimore peeps! I'll be signing copies of my books at the GLCCB tent at the Baltimore BookFestival from 1-2 pm on Saturday, September 23rd, and then from 2-3 pm I'll be reading at the GLCCB building, 1st floor reception area, 241 W. Chase Street, Baltimore (a few blocks north). If you're in the area, stop by! My favorite stuff at the Baltimore Book Festival: CityLit Stage, Emma's Radical Bookfair stage, Goodloe Byron's free books, the free beer at the hospitality tent, that dogs are allowed, and that Frog and Toad are there. I really hope Frog and Toad are there this year:
