Library announces date for 25th annual BookMania! festival

The Martin County Library System is pleased to announce the return of BookMania!

Scheduled to take place on March 2, 2019 at the Jensen Beach High School Performing Arts Center, authors will participate in one of multiple panel discussions featuring prominent and emerging writers, including Alison Gaylin, Susan Wiggs, and previous BookMania! guest, James Patterson. Specific panel themes include: Historical Fiction, Detective & Suspense, Family & Women’s Literature, and Psychological Thriller. Titles by guest authors will be represented through a combination of the Library’s regular, Martin’s Most Wanted, and eBook collections.

BookMania! is free and open to the general public. Lunch from the Martin County Sheriff’s Office BBQ team will be available for cash only at the event. Additionally, a ticketed sponsors’ event, A Literary Affair, will be held on the evening prior to the festival.

This popular program has achieved national recognition for its stellar authors, record attendance, and impressive Barnes & Noble book sales. Now in its “silver anniversary,” BookMania! remains a favorite destination for a wide and diverse audience and is sponsored by The Library Foundation of Martin County, Inc.
