Texas Book Festival - October 27-28, 2012

It's book fest season in Texas! Now that the Austin Teen Book Festival is a wrap, it's time for the Texas Book Festival - October 27-28th right here in Austin! This is an internationally known event that started in 1995 by former First Lady Laura Bush. The fest draws thousands of people of all ages and highlight authors from every genre you can imagine. The event takes place on the capital grounds and it is a beautiful place to spend some time. I have attended for several years and it never disappoints. The parties, authors, and volunteers all make for a great two day book extravaganza. I love volunteering in the children's signing tent and plan on helping out again this year! You can too, just go HERE.

There is a stellar lineup again this year. Here are just a few that I am most excited to meet:

My friend, and Austin author, Greg Leitich Smith has put together a list of kidlit and yalit panels for your viewing pleasure

Full lineup of authors can be found HERE

Hope I see you there!
