Last week, the UPF marketing team traveled to beautiful St. Petersburg, Florida for the annual Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading! We had a a wonderful time selling our variety of Florida books ranging from history, gardening, literature, cooking, and much more.

We were thrilled to see many of UPF’s authors at the festival, including Gary Monroe, author of  E. G. Barnhill: Florida Photographer, Adventurer, Entrepreneur and Albert C. Hine, coauthor of Sea Level Rise in Florida: Science, Impacts, and Options, who were both featured speakers at the event. We also saw other authors including Jeff Klinkenberg, author of Alligators in B-Flat: Improbable Tales from the Files of Real Florida.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hello!
