Florida Fans Rejoice

No I'm not talking about Gator Fans, I'm talking to true state-of-Florida-in-all-her-natural-beauty-and-quirky-strangeness fans. Here's an event you'll love!

The tiny town of Lake Helen has been hosting a book fair every year that features real-live Florida authors. The Florida Authors Book Fair benefits The Lake Helen Friends of the Library and this will be the 16th year of the event. Whether or not you are a book enthusiast, this is a free, fun and fascinating event and it's happening this weekend. 

Make plans now to stop by on Saturday, March 7 at Historic Hopkins Hall in Lake Helen, Florida from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Thirty authors from across Florida will be signing, selling and discussing their books while donating a portion of their proceeds to the Lake Helen Public Library. Free parking and admission.

The preservation of Florida's people, places and history is a common
theme among many authors this year. They include my friend and fellow blogger Mark Lane, Nancy Barber and Jane Bolding, Muncy and Herb Chapman, Ray Cunningham, Roger Fulton, Herb Hiller, Fred Hitt, Alice and Ron Howell, Bob Kealing, Jeffery Lamb,Tom Levine, Edgar J. L'Heureux, Robert Macomber, Helen Parramore, Lowell Teal, and Ron Williamson.

Directions: I-4, Exit 116, east on 4116 for .8 mile to left on Euclid Ave., north 2
blocks to Hopkins Hall at 192 W. Connecticut Avenue.
