The Downtown Columbia Partnership proudly announces the fourth annual Books in Bloom Festival, the ultimate celebration of the joys of books and reading with world-famous authors. Books in Bloom returns this summer through a virtual series!

In this unique and hilarious debut memoir, writer and comedian Greg Mania chronicles life as a “pariah prodigy.” From inadvertently coming out to his Polish immigrant parents, to immersing himself in the world of New York City nightlife, and finding himself and his voice in comedy. Born to Be Public is a vulnerable and poignant exploration of identity (and the rediscovery of it), mental health, sex and relationships, all while pursuing a passion with victories and tragicomic blunders. In conversation with Greg is Tommy McFly, host of the Tommy Show and NBC reporter.

While this year’s Books in Bloom may look different, we’re thrilled to continue the tradition of bringing community members, local businesses, and the country’s brightest authors together to celebrate the joy of books and reading in a format that fits the needs of today’s world.
