It’s Time for the Gaithersburg Book Festival!

The Gaithersburg Book Festival is a celebration of the written word and its power to enrich the human experience. Its mission is to foster an interest in reading, writing and literary conversation.








Since its inception in 2010, the festival has quickly become one of the nation’s top literary events, attracting hundreds of award-winning and bestselling authors, poets, and songwriters from across the country to its quaint, park-like setting in the heart of Olde Towne Gaithersburg.

This year's lineup has something for everyone and includes Elliot Ackerman, Mark Bittman, E.J. Dionne, Keith Donohue, John Feinstein, Julia Fine, Joe Flood, Aminatta Forna, Tom Glenn, Gareth Hinds, Tracey Livesay, Eugene L. Meyer, Madeline Miller, Jenny Yacovissi, and many, many more.

Funded in part by generous sponsors and supported by the City of Gaithersburg, the festival offers programming for all ages, is free to attend and is open to everyone. (Be sure to stop by the Independent's table right in front of city hall! We'll be raffling off books — and giving away candy!)
