Event Details

Join us for the 24th annual Southwest Florida Reading Festival, held on the beautiful, downtown Fort Myers Regional Library campus! 

The Southwest Florida Reading Festival has a first-rate reputation with a diverse line-up of more than 20 nationally acclaimed, best-selling authors for adults, teens, and children. This free, fun event is loved by attendees who come back year after year to hear and meet best-selling authors, participate in contests and activities and find the latest and greatest in books, technology, and accessories. In addition to author appearances and autographing sessions, there are storytelling programs, arts, crafts, youth writing and coloring contests, and a free book for every child and teen.
