SWFL reading festival brings books, authors to Fort Myers

FORT MYERS, Fla. Best selling authors from all over the world will be coming to Centennial Park on Saturday for the annual Southwest Florida Reading Festival.

For Tui Sutherland, the event is a reminder of why his job is important.

“I meet a lot of young writers at these festivals who have so many ideas of their own and they’re excited about it.” said Sutherland, an author from Boston. “I just really love getting to talk to them about books and seeing them be excited about books.”

The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is free to the public.
