It was a beautiful day in Tallahassee for Word of South: A Festival of Literature and Music! We brought some of our new and bestselling books in history, gardening, art, literature, cooking, and the outdoors to the festival. This year four UPF books received Florida Book awards, and authors of the award-winning books were invited to be featured speakers at the event.
