Inaugural Book Festival!!

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

While randomly looking for tour dates for an author I like who has a new book coming out, I came across a local book festival. I was very excited to see that my alma mater, the University of Central Florida, is having their inaugural UCF Book Festival. This event will include author discussions and book signings!! AND, it's all free!! The list of authors includes:

This event is scheduled to take place April 16 and 17 of this year. The only problem? I'm supposed to go to a baby shower on the 17th, which from what I gather is the day of the main events! I sent an e-mail to find out when the schedule of authors will be available, so hopefully I'll be able to work around it!

So glad you stopped by my blog so that I could find yours and then find this post. I live in Clearwater and might just have to head over to Orlando for this event. I always think bookish things don't happen in Florida so I'm thrilled to see a great event.

Michelle -- I'm glad too! I hope I can make it out there during some point. This is the first book event I've heard of around here except for Miami!
