Annually,the Florida Heritage Book Festival honors one acclaimed author at the Literary Legends Reception. This tradition has seen some of Florida’s most acclaimed writers accept their awards in person and enthrall audiences with remarks about their legendary careers. This year the late children’s author, E.L. Konigsburg, will be awarded the Florida Heritage Book Festival Literary Legends Award. Paul and Ross Konigsburg, sons of E.L. Konigsburg, will be in attendance to receive the award for their mother, who once was a school teacher in Ponte Vedra Beach.
This event, which will induct Konigsburg into the festival’s Literary Legends Hall of Fame, will be held in Flagler College’s Solarium, on the top floor of Ponce Hall. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served.
Cost of attendance is $70. To register and purchase tickets, please click on the event website link.
Proceeds benefit St. Johns County Friends of the Library groups, The St. Augustine Record Newspaper Media in Education program, and a scholarship for a Flagler College student.
