The Texas Book Festival brings 250 writers to the same place

The 17th annual Texas Book Festival runs Oct. 27-28 on and around the Texas Capitol grounds (11th Street and Congress Avenue). All sessions are free and open to the public; arrive early to ensure seating. Book fest activities continue into the evening hours with Saturday night's Lit Crawl Austin, situated at various venues on and around East Sixth Street.

You can find more of our recent interviews with TBF 2012 authors, including Suzy Spencer (Secret Sex Lives: A Year on the Fringes of American Sexuality), W.K. Stratton (Floyd Patterson: The Fighting Life of Boxing's Invisible Champion), and Michael Brick (Saving the School: The True Story of a Principal, a Teacher, a Coach, a Bunch of Kids, and a Year in the Crosshairs of Education Reform), as well as capsule reviews of new books from not-to-miss TBF authors, online at austinchronicle.com/texas-book-festival. (Even more TBF previews can be found in Food, p.56, and Music, p.70.) For the full festival lineup, visit www.texasbookfestival.org.
