BookMania Author Festival Will Bring 12 Accomplished Authors To Jensen Beach
As Floridians, we are accustomed to February bringing chilly weather. We rescue jackets and sweatshirts from the backs of our closets and reluctantly don closed-toe shoes. Perhaps this is why we tend to spend most of February cuddled under a blanket with a good book.
What to Read this Month: The BookMania! author festival will take place on Saturday, March 4 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Jensen Beach High School. Twelve authors will be attending this year, and if you are looking for an author to start with, I suggest Jade Chang.
The Wangs Vs. the World is a comedic story about an Asian-American family taking a cross-country road trip. Chang’s aptitude for writing dialogue brings the not-so-stereotypical Wangs to life in a manic and unexpecting way. I can’t wait to see her speak as part of the Discover Great New Writer Panel at BookMania!
Must-Attend Event for Kids: Barnes & Noble in Jensen Beach will host the 21st annual American Girl Tea Party on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 2 p.m. We invite everyone to dress in their tea party best and bring friends. This is the social event of the year for kids ages 4 to 14. Games, activities, prizes, snacks and tea (of course) will be provided for all.
