The Gaithersburg Book Festival was an excellent example of what happens when a community gets behind a project. There were lots of volunteers, great food concessions, and a well organized series of speakers in large festival tents. Add to that perfect weather in a lovely outdoor setting and you can see why I had a good time. Plus, my table was next to the tent that hosted two cooking demonstrations and a presentation on gourmet coffee complete with free samples. Oh, and I signed a few books for some new fans too. I already can't wait for the SECOND annual Gaithersburg Book Festival.
