Come party at The Ivy Bookshop on October 13th!
Join a roomful of authors published by CityLit Press for a special event commemorating its 5th anniversary. Founded in 2004, CityLit Project burst onto the scene with its signature festival, which Baltimore magazine called "a can't miss event on the city's cultural scene." Public programs, writers' workshops, and youth outreach followed. In 2010, CityLit launched a literary imprint to publish writers often overlooked due to the literary nature or regional focus of their work.
