Kensington Day of the Book Festival

Sunday, April 27, 12-5

Howard Avenue in Old Town Kensington. (Street will be closed from
Armory Avenue down to the Train Station) Just one block from
Connecticut Avenue, one mile outside the Beltway.

This is a wonderful street festival, rain or shine. Over 100 local
authors, book and paper artists, small press publishers, literary
groups, booksellers, and community organizations will set up along two
blocks of Howard Avenue in Kensington Md to show, sell, and discuss
their books and art.

Live music performed by JP McDermott & Western Bop, and a great duo
Esther Haynes & Keith Grimes (Keith is the former guitarist for the
Eva Cassidy Band).
Also, meet Art Harrison and listen to him play his Theremin! Also,
Doris Justice & Mark Ashbury.

Children will love the storytelling by the Twinbrook Tellers in the
Children's Tent.
Adults can sit for a while at the Open Mic and listen to poets and
authors read from their works.
Bring in your rare books for a free expert evaluation. Maybe you have
a true treasure!
