Grand Central District, St. Petersburg, FL
Book Events Tampa Bay Area
Kathy will be part of one of the quirkiest and most fun book events in Florida . Or, at least, book events Tampa Bay Area style! She’ll be reading at the Sawgrass Tiki Bar at 7 p.m. during the Grand Central Lit Crawl. And as book events in Florida go, no place is better suited to host a pairing of great readings with adult beverages than the Grand Central District of Central Avenue in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The Grand Central Lit Crawl, put on by Wordier Than Thou, matches up four unique bars in the Grand Central District of Central Avenue in St. Petersburg, Florida with popular local writers of the area. Readings and pub crawls go together like Hemingway and Sloppy Joe’s. Like Kerouac and the Flamingo Bar. Like Jimmy Buffett and Margaritaville. Clearly, book events Tampa Bay Area style have their own flavor…often with a salt rim.
The pub line up for the event is:
The Queens Head Eurobar- 4 p.m.
The Old Key West Bar and Grill – 5 p.m.
The Community Cafe – 6 p.m.
The Sawgrass Tiki Bar – 7 p.m.
And as book events in Florida go, no place is better suited that the Grand Central District of St. Petersburg. Bicycle and pedestrian friendly, the district is home to a diverse variety of locally owned eateries, antique sellers, galleries, bars and eclectic shops. A breeze to visit using the Central Avenue Trolley, the Grand Central District runs from the 1600 block to the 3000 block of Central Avenue, and the nearby parts of First Avenue, both North and South.
St. Petersburg and the Tampa Bay Area have a large and impressive literary community that includes Dennis Lehane, Kris Radish, Christopher Buehlman, Jeff Strand, Richard Lee Byers, Sterling Watson and, of course, K.L. Nappier. And St. Petersburg is fast becoming one of the hottest spots in the tri-county area for quality arts, culture and book events in the Tampa Bay Area.
