2018 LitLIVE! at Barnes & Noble


The public is welcome to attend this event of Literary Feast that is free and open to the public. LitLIVE! is generously sponsored by Nova Southeastern University. 

Literary Feast 2018 authors will appear in a panel discussion format followed by book signings at three Barnes & Noble bookstores in Broward County.  A percentage of book sales benefit the Broward Public Library Foundation. The public may not bring their own books. Books must be purchased in the store for signing. Books may be reserved in advance and charged to your account the day of the event.

Although this event is free, tickets are required. Tickets may be requested online only. Tickets between stores are not transferable. Please request tickets for the store with authors you are interested in hearing. 

For more information, call the Broward Public Library Foundation office at 954-357-7382.

For store directions, please phone the individual Barnes & Noble stores directly.


ACTIVE members at ALL membership levels will have access to reserved seating at Literary Feast’s LitLIVE! IF they have registered in advance. Reserved seating cannot be guaranteed to BPLF members if they do not register in advance because active status cannot be verified the night of the event.

Author appearances are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances.
