Baltimore Hosts 3rd Annual Urban Book Festival

Baltimore's third annualUrban Book Festival

is coming up Sunday, July 14, featuring a Sip and Sign Q&A -- and yes, that means a free glass of wine.

Featured authors include Caroline Jhingory ("Half My Size: How I Ate to Lose 150 Lbs."), Sadequa Johnson ("Love in a Carry-on Bag"), Angela Stanton ("Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil") and more. Stay late for a chance to meet the authors and get your books signed.

You'll also find vendors, publishers, a kids' corner and a spoken word poetry hour. Black Art in America will share a mini art gallery.

The festival runs noon through 6 p.m. at the Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Museum (1417 Thames St., Baltimore). Admission is free.
