Attention bibliophiles and anyone looking for a good time in lovely Mount Vernon Square (hey — not that type of good time, buddy!)!  It’s September in Baltimore and that can mean only one thing — it’s Baltimore Book Festival time! 
The George Peabody Library will be open September 23, 24, and 25.  We’ll have talks with local authors, children’s activities, and collection spotlights featuring staff favorites!  This slideshow features some of our favorite books, all of which will be discussed or on display during the festival.
Get the scoop on all the awesome activities at the Peabody here!
