Alert to all Central Florida bookworms and aspiring writers: The Orlando Book Festival is bringing published authors to your downtown library for a daylong event of writing workshops and panels. Allison Brennan, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than a dozen thrillers, and Star Wars: Aftermath author Chuck Wendig are keynote speakers, and among the dozens of featured authors are food memoirist Diana Abu-Jaber, kickass University of Florida historian James C. Clark and accomplished local YA author Lauren Gibaldi. From workshops on world-building to panels on crafting tension (on the page, not in life), there's something here to help break down writer's block – no matter what the genre.
