Book It to Humanities Texas and Meet Local Writers

Nonprofit Humanities Texas’ annual holiday book bazaar, which happens tomorrow (12/8), is a two-birds, one-stone kinda deal: You get presents for loved ones on your list, and Humanities Texas presents you with the opportunity to meet some of Austin’s finest writers. Win-win, right?

Twenty-some participating authors – including Jan Reid, Sarah Bird, Katherine Catmull, H.W. Brands, Shana Burg, and Jacqueline Kelly – will be on hand to shake hands and sign books purchased at the fair. (You can see the full list of authors at the Humanities Texas website.)

Held at the historic Byrne-Reed house (1410 Rio Grande), the Humanities Texas Holiday Book Fair runs 10am-1pm tomorrow and benefits area libraries.
