With just one month to go until the Texas Book Festival, it's time to hit the books.
This week, TBF announced its schedule, and, yes, we'll admit, it's a little daunting. But exciting! Two-hundred-plus authors appearing over the course of two days on panels and at events ranging from "Back to Life: Humanizing Medical Mysteries" and "Literature on the Lam: Famous Fugitives" to "Zombies vs. Unicorns." (Um, unicorns. Duh.)
Don't worry. Breathe deep. We're here to help. We'll be spotlighting Texas Book Festival authors for the next month, starting with this week's reviews of new books by Cristina García and Joseph Skibell.
We've also corralled all our earlier coverage of TBF authors – like Julie Klausner, Jake Silverstein, Owen Egerton, and Lance Letscher (who designed this year's zippy 15th anniversary poster, see right) – and plunked them all down in one easy-to-find, easy-to-navigate place.
