Lit-urday: Supremacist
Before reading Supremacist, I was a mere bystander of the Supreme phenomenon. My knowledge was limited to the fact that it is a skate brand, which oozes ultra-exclusivity and sophistication. But David Shapiro's novel sent me to all corners of the Internet, researching articles, abandoned blogs, and Twitter accounts about the cult clothing line.

Saadia Faruqi at BookPeople
Growing up in Pakistan and immigrating to the United States gave Houston writer and interfaith activist Saadia Faruqi a unique opportunity: Use fiction as a conduit for cultural awareness. Or at least, tell some good stories and narrow the perspective gap.

Neil Gaiman on James Thurber's The 13 Clocks
Because it's not enough that we asked the man about his own work during this interview we just published. No, we had to be like, "So, uh, Neil – is there some book that's a longtime favorite of yours but that doesn't have the wider readership you think it deserves?"

Lit-urday: Slade House
It's been a long week, and now you deserve to have one day when you can curl up with a good book – let's call it Lit-urday. How about something creepy, something redolent of the All Hallows unholyday currently passing?

Texas Book Festival 2015: The Book of Aron
Kids see all and comprehend some. It’s parenting 101 and something literature has depicted for centuries, perhaps never so elegantly as in What Maisie Knew. Jim Shepard’s Kirkus Prize-nominated The Book of Aron is not as subtle as Henry James’, but the Warsaw Ghetto during Nazi occupation was not a subtle time.

Texas Book Festival 2015: The Clasp
Class striving is not a new thing, although its modern iteration certainly puts a unique spin on an age-old complaint: Now the have-plentys – but never have-enough! – take obsessively art-directed selfies at overpriced brunches and Pinterest-board Williams-Sonoma copper-pot porn.

Lit-urday: The Same Sky
It's been a long week, and now you deserve to have one day when you can curl up with a good book – let's call it Lit-urday. Maybe the thing to make you feel better about your week is to read about someone struggling in a city very familiar to you. Or maybe it's to read about someone whose struggles are a world away from yours. Or maybe it's to read about both. In one book.

In the Unlikely Event
Judy Blume has just published her 28th book, and she’s visiting Austin for the first time this weekend. Since 1969, she’s covered topics other authors wouldn’t dare include in children’s lit: sex, racism, bullying, periods, divorce, and more.
