F.R.E.S.H. BOOK FESTIVAL 2023

A READING REVOLUTION COMES TO

DAYTONA BEACH

F.R.E.S.H. Book Festival returns for its annual on-site "all things books" weekend in Daytona Beach.

The 2021 in-person festival set the tone for the weekend.  After going virtual and

international in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, F.R.E.S.H. returned with new faces

and new reasons to continue promoting "Literacy is a Legacy."
