CityLit Prepares for 2018 Baltimore Book Festival


This year’s CityLit Stage at the Baltimore Book Festival pays homage to women writers in light of the 2017 VIDA Count which takes measure of the number of women getting published. A special nod to Asian Beach Reads, She Would Be King debut author Wayétu Moore, Danielle Evans, DaMaris Hill whose celebrated forthcoming work A Bound Woman is deemed “a reckoning” by Roxane Gay, and our global 100 Thousand Poets for Change celebration with renowned poets Patricia Smith, and local lit stars Gayle Danley, Kondwani Fidel, Dora Malech, among a host of others. CityLit Project thanks sponsors Insight180 Brand Consulting & Design, “where creative and strategic come together” - a woman-owned graphic design company in Ellicott City that withstood the storms of 2016 & 2018 - for keeping us in the light, and Johns Hopkins University.

The CityLit Stage is located at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, in front of the Maryland Science Center, 601 Light Street, Baltimore, MD 21230.
