Broward Public Library Foundation to Host Annual Literary Feast

Twelve nationally known authors, including James Grippando, Alvin Hall, Matthew Quick and Deanna Raybourn, will be this year’s special guests at the Broward Public Library Foundation’s 34th annual Literary Feast 2023.

Literary Feast Chairs Amanda Doering and Beth Malkin are working with more than 30 volunteers and generous dinner hosts to make this event a success.

On Friday evening March 31, the authors will speak on panels about their books and the writing process during LitLIVE!, an event open to the public at the Barnes & Noble, 2051 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale. The Fiction panel, moderated by Gail Bulfin, will be held from 5:30 to  6:15; the Mystery panel, moderated by Oline Cogdill, will be from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m.; and the Nonfiction panel, moderated by Mim Harrison, will be from 7:30 to 8:15 p.m. Authors will sign books purchased that night, with a portion of the sales benefiting the Library Foundation.

The fundraising Night of Literary Feasts, to be held on Saturday, April 1, will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a Welcome Reception at Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach. The reception includes the opportunity to meet all the authors and bid on silent auction items. After the reception, guests go on to a series of dinners with an author at private homes and restaurants, including Wine Watch, Lobster Bar, the Four Seasons, and Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar. Tickets start at $75 for the reception only and $175 for the reception and dinner and are available online.

As a LitLIVE! bonus, Literary Feast author Patricia Schultz will discuss her latest book, Why We Travel – 100 Reasons to See the World, at 1 p.m. Sunday, April 2  at the Fort Lauderdale Barnes & Noble.
