Well, if you’re reading this, something tells me you do. Don’t be shy; reading isn’t just for nerds. Heck, I read, and I’m … well, I’m not a nerd!

Anyway, if you’re looking for an apartment in Gaithersburg and you’re a book aficionado – or even a casual reader – you won’t want to miss out on the newly-minted Gaithersburg Book Festival. How new? Spring 2010 marked its debut.

This free event (they hope to make it annual, budget willing) features a plethora of national and internationally known writers, presenting and signing their works. This year, the festival brought big names like Pulitzer Prize-finalist Alice McDermott and sportswriter John Feinstein, plus a bunch more authors you may have heard of … or not.

That’s the great thing about book festivals: discovering a new favorite writer. Just think, if you rent in Gaithersburg, you’ll be that much closer to literary genius … once a year, at least.

Aspiring writers can also take advantage of several writers’ workshops. So, you can get in on the ground floor of this thing and have bragging rights at cocktail parties. Not that you’re a braggart or anything.

Don’t forget to utilize all the neighborhood and apartment information at Apartment Showcase.
