Our Big Little Book Festival

Right this very minute, even as we’re writing this post, New York Magazine editor Christopher Bonanos is moderating a conversation with actress-turned-writer Molly Ringwald. It’s one of the kickoff events of this year’s Palm Beach Book Festival, which runs through tomorrow.

This year’s festival includes panels on women’s fiction, women and film (featuring author Gail Sheehy), courtroom drama and Southern literature.

Our Burt. Burt Reynolds. The longtime Palm Beach County resident has released his memoir, But Enough About Me, and he’s eager to talk about it.

The book follows Reynolds through six decades as a leading man, heartthrob, and heart-breaker. But Enough About Me tells his story through the people he’s encountered along the way. In his words, he plans to “call out the [jerks],” to try to make amends for “being the [jerk] myself on too many occasions,” and to pay homage to the heroes he has come to love and respect. Reynolds told the Palm Beach Daily News, “The chart of my career looks like a heart attack. I’ve been through every career phase imaginable, some more than once.”

The discussion with Reynolds (11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Saturday, April 2, at the Norton Museum of Art) will be moderated by Scott Eyman, New York Times bestselling author and an international expert on the film industry.

Festival tickets are available online or at the Palm Beach Book Store, 215 Royal Poinciana Way.
