I attended the Baltimore Book Festival on Saturday and was pleased with the Inner Harbor location ("Book Festival gets positive reviews on Inner Harbor move," Sept. 27).
As opposed to the Mt. Vernon area, there was much more room for the crowds to navigate the festival, and being close to the Harborplace restaurants was a definite plus. When the Inner Harbor was first developed there were frequent festivals on the promenade and Rash Field during the summer months. In recent years that has been lacking, and the Book Festival filled that void if only for one weekend.
I hope that book festival and city officials consider having the book festival at the harbor on a permanent basis.
