Amelia Island Book Festival

The 18th Annual Amelia Island Book Festival is to be held February 14th - 16th in Amelia Island, Florida. Each year their mission is to provide a "unique literacy program that puts an author in every school so students can engage in a 360-degree experience with an author and their book." They support the Authors in Schools Literacy Program, the Tween/Teen Scenes, and Short Story Writing contest. Their festival is about getting a book into every child's hand and promoting a lifetime of learning! This year's Festival includes New York Times bestselling authors John Grisham, Diana Gabaldon, Steve Berry, Kristen Ashley, David Baldacci, Tess Gerritsen, and Ridley Pearson. Jayne Rose-Vallee will read at an elementary school to approximately 750 elementary students where her book "DLIMH!2" will be given to each child. What an amazing opportunity for author and students!
