The Library Foundation and Texas Book Festival are joining together to launch a new author series. In Conversation pairs writers for intimate discussions of their work.

The inaugural In Conversation features Katie Gutierrez and Rubén Degollado, whose novels explore families encountering folkloric curses, secret double lives, and the generational passage of time.

Gutierrez's debut literary novel, More Than You'll Ever Know, follows a woman caught leading a double life after one husband murders the other, and the true-crime writer who becomes obsessed with telling her story. Degollado's debut, The Family Izquierdo, weaves together the lives of three generations of a Mexican American family bound by love, and a curse.

The authors will sign books following the program. Books will be available for purchase thanks to Black Pearl Books.
