JHU Press/Peabody Library

The Johns Hopkins University Press, the George Peabody Library, and JHU’s Sheridan Libraries jointly host the JHU Press Book Sale along with a number of talks, book signings, and special exhibits at the 2014 Baltimore Book Festival in the beautiful Baltimore Visitors Center overlooking the Inner Harbor. The JHU Press Book Sale takes place inside the Visitors Center throughout the Festival, with Press authors scheduled to meet the public and sign books throughout the weekend. The George Peabody Library will offer a special exhibit of archival books and materials related to Baltimore history, and members of the Special Collections staff will offer a Peabody Collections Spotlight each day. Presentations in the Visitors Center include book talks by JHU Press authors Gil Sandler, Fraser Smith, Mike Olesker, Rick Striner, Melissa Blair, Michael Wolfe, Charley Mitchell, and others. Each day will end with Music from the Peabody, with performances by students from JHU’s Peabody Conservatory. The Visitors Center will remain open for business as usual during the Festival, welcoming visitors and showing a short film about Charm City every 20 minutes.
