The Martin County Library System is preparing for its 26th annual BookMania! festival on March 28, 2020 at the Jensen Beach High School Performing Arts Center, 2875 NW Goldenrod Road in Jensen Beach.
Barnes & Noble booksellers will be in the school's Nutrition Center selling the authors' books as well as children's books for the school book drive. In addition to the Barnes & Noble café for snacks and coffee, lunch from the Martin County Sheriff's Office BBQ Grill Team will be available for cash-only. Prominent and emerging authors will participate in one of multiple panel discussions (Spy/Espionage, Mystery/Thriller, A Dog's Perspective, Larger Than Life, and Historical Fiction). Books can be found in our collection for checkout, and a series of special BookMania! book clubs is planned leading up to the event.
This prestigious literary event is free and open to the general public. Additionally, a ticketed sponsors' event, A Literary Affair, will be held on the evening prior to the festival. This popular program has achieved national recognition for its stellar authors, record attendance, and impressive book sales. Now in its 26th year, BookMania! remains a favorite destination for a wide and diverse audience. It is sponsored by The Library Foundation of Martin County, Inc.
