R.L. Stine will make a special guest appearance at the event, which returns on Saturday, April 15, starting at 10:30 a.m. at the Orlando Public Library (101 E Central Boulevard).

The day-long event will celebrate books from local and statewide authors, including a slate of panels and talks from bestselling authors who live all across Florida.

Panels and writing workshops are scheduled for every hour from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and literary organizations will man tables during that time as well. Stine will give his keynote at 2:30 p.m., and at 3:30 p.m., all authors will participate in a signing.
