Texas Book Festival 2011 - Prep
Already on my "do not miss" list are presentations and interviews with: Juan Williams (Muzzled: The Assault on Honest Debate), Tom Perrotta (The Leftovers), Kathy Reichs (Seizure: A Virals Novel), and Russell Banks (Lost Memory of Skin). In addition, I've penciled in sessions on "What Really Happened at the O.K. Corral," "Writers on Reading," "Gangster Tour of Texas," and "America Aflame: How the Civil War Created a Nation."
Something new at the Festival this year is the inclusion of what they are calling a Saturday night "Lit Crawl" from various East Austin venues. I hope to make a couple of stops on that circuit, too.
