Festival of Reading
The 23rd annual Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading takes place Saturday, October 24th on the campus of USF St. Petersburg.
On University Beat on WUF 89.7, we’ll meet a pair of USF graduates who will be presenting their first novels at the Fest. The authors talk about their books and about how the university’s Master of Fine Arts program helped them hone their skills.
