The Baltimore Book Festival begins today in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. There are a variety of stages set up along the waterfront promenade including the Enoch Pratt Free Library’s Children’s Stage. Among those gracing that stage tomorrow are actress, storyteller, teacher and dancer, Maria Broom, who can now add author to her list of jobs. Her book for children is called The Village Bully. Also at the Children's Stage is Laurel Snyder, author of five novels for children, and two volumes of poetry. Her latest picture book is called Swan: The Life and Dance of Anna Pavlova.
