Long-time Literary Feast supporter Mike Jackson, CEO, AutoNation, Inc., said "A successful society is, by necessity, a literate society. Reading is the first skill among all others, and the Broward Public Library Foundation plays an essential role in the civic, cultural and commercial well-being of our community."
LitLUNCH! with Jen Lancaster
With a litany of bestselling self-improvement memoirs under her belt, you might think Jen Lancaster would have her act together by now … but she doesn’t. Her latest hit, The Tao of Martha, shows she’s still got work to do but who better than to try to emulate than Martha Stewart? Jen’s antics are hysterically funny and not to be missed!

"Literary Feast is crucial to sustaining the Broward Public Library Foundation’s mission to support Broward County libraries’ programs and services," said Joseph M. Goldstein, a partner at Shutts & Bowen LLP who, along with his wife, Mary, are serving as Literary Feast 2013 Co-Chairs. "Projects such as the Summer Reading Program, Books ‘n’ Bears at the Holidays, computer instruction classes and the innovative E-Reader loan program at the libraries are supported by the dollars raised through this unique event."
Former Literary Feast author Ellen Crosby described the event, saying, "Literary Feast paired a passionate group of people who write books with a passionate group of people who read books – and want to keep their libraries alive and well. A terrific weekend!"
