Ms. Bancroft says some of the other authors appearing at the Festival come from the worlds of politics, acting, music and the news media.
USF St. Pete Assoc. Prof. of Art History Sheramy Bundrick talks about her research for her book, "Sunflowers: A Novel of Vincent van Gogh," and reads a passage from it.
