Texas Book Festival 2011

Official 2011 Festival Poster
It's finally that time of year again.  The Texas Book Festival, held in Austin every year since Laura Bush dreamed up the idea when she was still First Lady of Texas, is fast approaching.  This year's festival will, in fact, be held on October 22-23.  I missed out on the event last year because of a scheduling conflict, so I'm particularly looking forward to the 2011 version.

This is the list of announced author attendees (I haven't looked at it in detail yet but a few names have already jumped out at me):
