2022 Sunshine Book Festival

Welcome to the 2022 Sunshine State Book Festival—bringing readers and writers together again.

A book festival is a celebration of learning and literacy that should be fun as well as educational, bringing together people of all ages who share a love of reading and who will leave the event inspired by their experiences.

Florida has an amazing literary history dating back to William Bartram nearly 250 years ago. Today, Gainesville is a leading center of literary culture and home to hundreds of writers, novelists, playwrights, and poets, many of whom you can meet at the Sunshine State Book Festival on Saturday, January 29, 2022 at the Oaks Mall 11am until 5 pm. 

  • Opportunity to meet and engage with authors, purchase books, and have them signed.
  • Children’s area with storytellers and kid’s activities
  • Hourly drawings for free books.
