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."

"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!"
