Adventures in Paradise

March 17-20, 2010

Thank you to our authors, sponsors and especially the festival event-goers for a GREAT festival! One of our featured authors' Nancy J. Cohen has a little to say on the festival too! Read the Lake County Festival of Reading entry on her blog.

The Lake County Library System Festival of Reading presents the highest quality literary and cultural events and activities to encourage the love of reading and to promote the programs and services of the libraries. The program connects readers and writers in a way that enriches both by providing informative and entertaining programs to the community. The 7th Annual Festival of Reading will be held March 17th through the 20th with the theme, "Adventures in Paradise". We will feature writing workshops and author events and host a Friday evening special gala reception celebrating all the authors at the Leesburg Public Library.

This year we are taking a new direction. We will strive to increase attendance and community participation and to enhance the experience for participating authors. To achieve success with the new direction, we will reduce the number of events and locate these programs in a regional site. Libraries will have active partnerships for promoting and producing the events in their area.
