Flightless Goose Lands at LakeFest

Flightless Goose has found a new lake!

Gilbert will be featured at the Columbia Festival of the Arts’ BookFest at LakeFest.

LakeFest is a weekend full of free, fun events for the entire family. With books, art exhibits, music, kids’ entertainment and crafts, demonstrations and a variety of activities for all ages, it’s a jam-packed weekend guaranteed to be fun for everyone!

BookFest at Lakefest puts a literary spin on the festivities.

From 1 to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 12, BookFest at LakeFest offers a free Kid’s Lit Hour. Flightless Goose author Eric D. Goodman will partner with Laura Shovan, the Maryland State Arts Council Artist-in-Education for Poetry and winner of this year’s Harriss Poetry Prize. After a reading of Flightless Goose, Laura will conduct a family poetry craft with the kids.

Eric will be signing copies of Flightless Goose for kids and their families — so come for the poetry and stay for the books!
