Humanities Texas will host their fifth annual Holiday Book Fair at their headquarters, the historic Byrne-Reed House. Whether you need to get some presents for those bibliophiles on your list, meet with some talented Texas authors, or you just really love reading, the Holiday Book Fair is where you need to be. 

Noteworthy authors participating in this year’s festivities include Bill Minutaglio, Steven Harrigan, Nick Kotz, Joe Nick Patoski, Chase Untermeyer, Jesús F. de la Teja, Jerome Loving, Ricardo C. Ainslie, Sarah Cortez, Nan Cuba, Diana Lopez, Hector Ruiz, Don Tate, and Andrea White. Authors will visit with holiday shoppers and sign copies of their latest books, which Humanities Texas will have available for purchase at a discounted price. Or simply come by for good conversation and delicious homemade baked goods and hot coffee.

Free parking will be available in the St. Martin’s Lutheran Church lot on the northwest corner of 15th and Rio Grande Streets. All proceeds from the book fair and bake sale will benefit Austin flood victims.
