Texas Book Festival
October 27, 2018 @ 10:00 am - October 28, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
The Texas Book Festival takes over the Capitol and its surrounding environs on October 27 and 28 to celebrate the written word, bringing notable authors from both near and far to Austin. This year’s lineup includes former White House photographer Pete Souza and former president of Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards, as well as local favorites like Helen Thompson and Casey Dunn.
The two-day festival also includes a number of signings, cooking demonstrations, and activities for children. Most events are free, with proceeds from books sold during the festival benefitting the Reading Rock Stars program and the Library Grants initiative. Head to their website for the full lineup of events and authors.
