Fernandina Beach, FL 32035
Location: On Amelia Island
Details: Amelia Island Book Festival
Annually, the Festival features bestselling, celebrity authors as well as new talent. Each Festival Friday we conduct the Authors in Schools program to bring an author and their books to every school in the county for an 360-degree educational experience for students. Working collaboratively with the district schools and library system, the Amelia Island Book Festival is a community-wide endeavor.
Growing each year, the Festival continues its original mission: to promote literacy by celebrating the joys of reading and writing. Our slogan has evolved to Amelia Book Island Festival: Celebrating books, people, culture and creativity.
The Festival is a community endeavor. More than 200 volunteers come together to bring this gift to people of all ages. Attendees come from far and wide not only to enjoy the festival, but also to explore this beautiful island, located just north of Jacksonville, Florida, and a bridge-span away from the mainland. Along with first-class restaurants, resorts and inns, visitors will find 13 miles of unspoiled, golden beaches, scenic marshes and rivers, historic sites, nature trails, fishing, golf and kayaking, art and of course –--books galore!
