The annual Gaithersburg Book Festival returns Saturday. It will be in-person for the first time since 2019.
“There’s no substitute for coming on-site, coming together, meeting authors, having some real face-time,” Gaithersburg Mayor Jud Ashman told MyMCM.
This year, the festival is relocated to the larger Bohrer Park at Summit Hill Farm.
“It’s your chance to meet and hear from roughly 120-130 of the best authors in the business for all different genres, all different ages, to actually get some face-time with them,” Ashman said.
“Even if you’re not a big reader, we don’t come together at this festival and just open books and read silently together. It’s about discussion of important topics and really interesting characters, and behind-the-scenes for historical figures, it’s a wonderful thing.”
The book festival is 10 a.m.-6 p.m. rain or shine. See directions and parking information here.
