Gaithersburg Book Festival This Weekend

The Gaithersburg Book Festival celebrates its fourth year this Saturday, May 18th. I will be in the “Hall of Exhibiting Authors Tent A”  (space HA-32, to be exact) across from the Politics and Prose tent, where I  hopefully will be selling and signing many copies of my book Deadball, A Metaphysical Baseball Novel. This is my second year attending the festival.

Held on the Gaithersburg City Hall Grounds in Old Town Gaithersburg, the festival runs from 10 am to 6 pm. The festival attracts  many nationally known authors, and many nationally unknown authors like yours truly, and has grown each year since its inception in 2010, becoming one of the nation’s top literary events. If you love books, you really should plan to attend the Gaithersburg Book Festival this Saturday. And if you do, please stop by and say “hello,” or at least wave as you walk by.

Gaithersburg Book Festival – Two Seconds of Fame, Six Hours of Books

This past Saturday (May 19, 2012) Huntington Park Publications had a table at the Third Annual Gaithersburg Book Festival.  It was a wonderful event, filled with book buyers, book sellers, book writers, book lovers, and lots of books.   Steve Quinn (our publisher), Dick O’Connor (a fellow author), and I had the chance to meet and talk with dozens of folks who were kind enough to stop by our tent.  One highlight for me was giving a Deadball postcard to journalist Marvin Kalb.

Montgomery County Public Schools was there to film part of the action.  Here’s the link:

A two second clip of me chatting with some festival attendees appears at .42 sec. – .44 sec.

I’m already looking forward to next year’s festival – May 18, 2013.  Be sure to save the date.
