The 16th Annual Texas Book Festival is no stranger to crowd-pleasing authors and this year’s lineup does not disappoint.

The Texas Book Festival is pulling out the big guns with a bevy of bestsellers, celebrity authors, favorable newcomers and the very first Texas Book Festival Lit Crawl.

The Texas Book Festival site has a nifty Calendar with descriptions of each speaker, along with the ability to add events to your own more personalized calendar. With a stellar lineup of well over 200 authors, creating a must-see list can be a daunting task. Who to see? Which books to buy?

Rest assured, PR by the Book has you covered! After all, we have the inside scoop with Marika Flatt serving on the festival’s committee. Flatt also has the honor of introducing Director/Writer/Emmy winner and children’s author, William Joyce on Saturday, Oct. 22nd.  Joyce will discuss his latest children’s book, The Man in the Moon (Guardians of Childhood) and an upcoming project with DreamWorks. Check out the link below for our personal calendar.

And for those of you needing to know the after-hours situation, the festival is throwing the first-ever Texas Book Festival Lit Crawl, which will take readers and writers through the trendy Eastside of Austin for readings, book signings and cocktail slinging-good-times with 20 of the festival’s authors (several big names).

The festival begins Saturday, October 22nd and ends Sunday, October 23rd. The event is free and open to the public; however, I recommend checking out the Texas Book Festival’s site to become a member for added perks, which include a “fast pass” to the front of the line at panels and in the signing tents.

Happy Reading!
