This year marks the sixth annual UCF Book Festival, which authors from all around the world attend, including a few that teach at the university. There are a variety of literary activities to choose from, whether you’d prefer to attend author panel discussions, get tips on how to write a novel with James O. Born (author of Scent of Murder), check out the cooking demonstrations (cookbooks are books too!) to satisfy your salivary urges, or even just get your favorite book signed. This year’s keynote author, Terry McMillan, wrote her first book, Mama, in a workshop with her writing group, the Harlem Writer’s Guild. Her novels speak to the soul and show the struggles one endures with family and friendships, and her keynote address (early in the day, at 11 a.m., so don’t miss out) is sure to touch on the necessity of connection. Don’t be afraid to let your inner lit-freak come out to fuel that passion for books!
