The Austin Chronicle

2003 Texas Book Festival Preview

What's past is present: earlier coverage on attending authors

By Shawn Badgley, November 7, 2003, Books

A glance at the Texas Book Festival's list of attending authors reveals that the Chronicle in the past year-plus has covered quite a few of them. By "cover," we mean that we've interviewed the authors, reviewed their books, or both. In terms of this year's TBF, that total comes to at least 25, and includes local writers, writers who have visited, and just writers. Since it's in no one's best interests to duplicate coverage, we're providing this handy list of URLs, the Web pages for which contain the aforementioned coverage. In deciding whom to check out this weekend (see schedule, p.40, for time, date, and place), check out these profiles and opinions first. Our record on these sorts of things is pristine.
