The Fifth Annual Texas Book Festival

World of Books
By Robert Faires

The Fifth Annual Texas Book Festival takes place this weekend, and, once again, it will prove to be the best use of the State Capitol all year long. All Book Festival readings and panels are free and take place at the State Capitol. We've profiled seven authors who will be attending the Book Festival; some of them write with Texas accents, some of them don't. Whatever their subject matter is, they'll all be celebrated this weekend. See a complete schedule of the weekend's events.
