2012 Texas Book Festival
With almost 100 authors from around the country gathered together in Austin's historic downtown, The Texas Book Festival is a bibliophile's biggest day in Texas. Tents will be set up along Congress Avenue, and the State Capitol itself will be full of authors and fans.
Bring your well-loved books to be signed by your favorite authors and enjoy some time at the entertainment, children's and sales tents. There's truly something for every reader at the Festival.
Saturday night, leave the kids at home and celebrate the Texas Book Festival Lit Crawl along East Sixth Street. Authors will be reading from and signing their books in two late-night sessions on the East side's favorite bars.
