In my previous post I referenced the Texas Book Festival, and after moving to Austin, TX at the beginning of the summer I’ve been thinking about this festival ever since! As you’ve noticed, I absolutely love to read, so to be surrounded by other people that feel the same way is a dream come true. Along with being surrounded by fellow readers, there is something so special about meeting an author you admire. My favorite author that I’ve met so far is John Sandford (maybe a blog post on him later?)
The Texas Book Festival is held in Austin, TX at the State Capital Building – both in and outside, so let’s hope for nice weather! One of the best things about the festival is that it’s completely free. I can almost guarantee it will be hard to find a parking spot, so I plan to take an Uber!
There will be over 250 authors at the festival, and at least one book needs to be purchased from the BookPeople tent in order to join the signing lines and meet the authors! Since the festival is free, I think this is a small price to pay!
On Saturday, October 17th the Texas Book Festival runs from 10am-5pm, and Sunday from 11am-5pm. There will be food trucks both days if you plan to be there for lunch and dinner (which I will be!)
I’m already counting down the days! Does anyone else plan on attending?!
