The author of the popular Goosebumps horror book series will give a keynote address during this weekend’s Orlando Book Festival.
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.
Known fondly as the “Stephen King of children’s literature,” Stine has published over 500 horror fiction novels across multiple series that include Fear Street, Goosebumps, Rotten School, Mostly Ghostly, and The Nightmare Room.
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.
In addition to Stine, Sorboni Banerjee, Kelly Coon, Jan Eldredge, Lauren Gibaldi, Christina Farley, and multiple other authors will attend the event.
