Here I am at the Baltimore CityLit Festival 2011, in a photo by Bill Hughes, holding my first novel, To Kill the Other!

Yesterday I attended the CityLit Festival in Baltimore, just 20 minutes north of my home. The festival celebrates the literary arts in Baltimore, and was held at the beautiful and historic Enoch Pratt Central Library.

Getting to the event required a drive through a soaking spring rain, but it was worth it. As I explain in the short video below, CityLit was a great opportunity to meet readers and other writers and to talk about books and the ever-changing publishing industry. Among the key speakers were Andrei Codrescu, Jaimy Gordon, Danielle Evans, and Jehanne Wake.

In the week ahead, look for more blog posts and videos from the conference, including an in-depth interview with global peace advocate Chic Dambach, who was a featured author at the festival.
