February 16th, 2019 · Leave a Comment

Jax Book Fest returns to the Main Library on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with its biggest headlining author yet. Guinness World record-breaking, internationally best-selling author of the Goosebumps series, R.L. Stine, will speak and sign books. Mike Thaler, author of the Black Lagoon series, will also be speaking and signing books. Nearly 100 local and national best-selling authors and literary vendors representing every genre from fiction to mystery to romance, for every age group from toddlers to teens to adults, will be in attendance selling and signing books.

The library is expecting a large turnout for R.L. Stine’s 1 p.m. presentation in Hicks Auditorium at the Main Library. The first 60 people in line outside Hicks Auditorium at 10 a.m. will receive a wristband for a guaranteed spot in line to get their books signed by Stine following his presentation. The first 380 people in line will receive a wristband for a guaranteed seat in Hicks Auditorium for the presentation. Library doors open at 10 a.m., those who received a wristband will be allowed to enter the auditorium at noon.

The public is invited to attend the free event, take home a free souvenir tote bag while supplies last, hear presentations by favorite authors, buy books to get signed, learn about e-publishing including the library’s SELF-e platform with Library Journal, browse vendor exhibits, and much more. For eats and treats, food trucks will be at Hemming Park across from the Main Library during the event.
