Black Makers Market hosts an outdoor market with a DJ and vendors, in-store local author book signings, poetry reading workshops, specials from neighboring retailers and restaurants, giveaways, and more.
The Texas Book Festival's April book club pick is Nepantla Familias: An Anthology of Mexican-American Literature On Families In Between Worlds edited by Sergio Troncoso.

Don’t forget, citizen: The best place to get your reading material is from Austin's own Malvern Books or HalfPrice Books or Black Pearl Books or Bookpeople or BookWoman stores – in-person or online. (And for the ultimate in vintage collectors' editions and unique works on paper, we recommend the excellent South Congress Books.)Or try Bookshop.org in general – because Bookshop, unlike the online behemoth named after a river, shares the profits among all its independent-bookstore members.
