Broadsheet is trying to get the word out about the 13th Annual Baltimore Book Festival, which is the mid-Atlantic’s premier celebration of the literary arts and will be held Sept 26th-Sept 28th at the Historic Mount Vernon Place centered on the 600 block of North Charles Street, 21201. Baltimore, MD. We are working with the Book Festival organizers hoping to create a buzz about the event through the internet.
I will be representing the League of Women Voters at the festival all weekend registering voters, handing out absentee ballots, and giving everyone a chance to change your address without standing in line for 5 hours at the MVA. This is a NATIONAL election year, and the deadline for voter registration in Baltimore is October 14, 2008.
I represent the League of Women Voters, and our primary goal is to get as many people as possible to exercise their constitutional right - VOTE!
This is an historic election. Your vote is your voice. Please speak up. We'll have lots of voter education materials - please stop by.
The Baltimore Book Festival is free to the public and is featuring both nationally known and local authors including: Dr. Cornel West, Naomi Wolf, Walter Moseley, Congresswomen Linda and Loretta Sanchez, Iyanla Vanzant, Daniel Mark Epstein and Omar Tyree. It will also have poetry readings, children’s activities, cookbook demonstrations by chefs such as Martin Yan, George Duran and The Hearty Boys, live music and more than 100 exhibitors and book sellers.As with any Baltimore festivals, there will be plenty of great food, great music, and terrific people.
