Head to the Florida State Fair Grounds from 10am-5pm, where authors, artists, and vendors of bookish services and merch will have booths set up for you to shop until your heart’s content!  Bookish Panels start at 9am.  Though this event is open to all ages, some panels may include explicit language and topics unsuitable for children.  We will notate these panels in our itinerary.  Missed a panel topic you wanted to see?  Don’t worry!  All of our panels will be recorded and available for viewing via our Facebook Group after the event.
