EVENT: UCF Book Festival

WHAT: Back for a third year, the UCF Book Festival is growing into its ambition as the city’s premier expo for lit lovers. Filling the celebrity role this year are “The Color of Water” memoirist James McBride and — drawing a completely different fan base — former Casey Anthony prosecutor Jeff Ashton, who has been boosting his already high profile with a book about the trial. Meet them and nearly 50 other authors between the shelves and in a series of talks, including a Southern cookbook panel.

WHEN: 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, March 31

WHERE: UCF Arena, Building 50, North Gemini Boulevard, on the campus of the University of Central Florida, Orlando

COST: Free
