The Texas Book Festival has announced the names of the authors who will be coming to the Festival on October 16 – 17. Clicking on the link will take you to the list. If you hover your pointer over an author’s name, you can click to find out more.
Also now up is where and when you can find your favorite authors, along with the subject matter, moderator or emcee. You can even set up your own schedule of who you want to see and then print it out. Clicking on the underlined title of each event will bring up a pop-up screen with more information.
If you scroll down on the Calendar page – scroll, scroll, until you come to Austin Museum of Art, you’ll find me! Okay, not me as an author. In fact, my name’s not mentioned at all. But…if you find something at AMOA that interests you, put it on your calendar and also make a note to say “hi” since I’ll be there all day, both days.
Okay, you’re taking too much time to check out the writers and artists who will be at AMOA. I’m so excited, I’m going to list them for you!
On Saturday:Terry Allen with Katy Vine, moderator
Steven and Reefka Schneider with Dahlia Guerra doing the introduction
Matthew White with Helen Thompson, moderator
Marianne Stockebrand with Ned Rifkin, moderator
On Sunday:Geoff Winningham with Richard Holland doing the introduction
DJ Stout with John Spong doing the introduction
David Bush and Jim Parsons with Judy Taylor doing the introduction
Arthur Andersson and Chris Wise with Helen Thompson, moderator
Of course, there are other things you can do at TBF – visit the exhibitors’ tents, listen to bands in the Music tent, take your kids to the Kids’ Tent, walk around inside the Capitol, visit the food tents.
But if you come to the Book Festival and don’t find me at the Austin Museum of Art and give me a hug, I’m gonna haunt you. You’re probably wondering how I would know you were there in the first place. Well… I have my ways. Okay, I don’t have even one way, let along multiple ways. It’s true, I would have no idea. Besides, by the end of Sunday, I’m ready to collapse and am too tired to haunt anybody.
So… come, enjoy, meet the authors, celebrate books! And it’s not too late to volunteer to do something at this year’s Festival. You get a free t-shirt!
