One for the Books: 20th Annual Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading
Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading 20th Anniversary

For two decades, the Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading has celebrated books with author talks, a street festival and book sale. This year's main event is Saturday, Oct. 20, at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. Join Carson Cooper for a conversation with Tampa Bay Times book editor Colette Bancroft. We'll also hear readings from three participating authors, visit Inkwood Books in South Tampa and hear what's on the nightstands of WUSF listeners.
