Gaithersburg Book Festival

You can expect some news, links, and photos from us regarding the convention and Kensington very soon. But until then, here’s a post about BCinDC’s upcoming table at the Gaithersburg Book Festival.

The Gaithersburg Book Festival is scheduled (rain or shine) for Saturday, May 21, 2011, from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM in Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA. BCinDC will have an official tent where we will be able to distribute FREE books to all festival-goers. This is the second year in a row that the city of Gaitherburg has kindly invited us to join their festivities. It was great fun last year, and we’re determined to make this year’s festival even better.

All Bookcrossers are invited to attend. Whoever wants to man the tent is free to do so. You are under no obligation to remain in the tent the whole time, as there is so much else to do at the Festival. We will just congregate in the tent and explain the fun of BookCrossing to visiting festival-goers. The admission price to the fair is… FREE!!!

Mark your calendars now! If you have any questions about the festival, feel free to contact SqueakyChu by PM.

Please visit this page: and report in with the number of books you’ve pre-released to the festival, so we can get a good count. You can also send books to SqueakyChu, but they must arrive by May 14 so she has time to organize and box them up for the festival.
