Saturday April 13 is a big day for books in Texas, as Austin’s long-running Texas Book Festival expands to San Antonio for a first-ever single-day event crammed with Texas authors at two venues: San Antonio’s Central Library and the Southwest School of Art.
The schedule is too long to list here, but it includes the following authors who have been reviewed in the Observer (links go to our reviews):
And what are we reading right now? The excellent On the Edge: Water, Immigration, and Politics in the Southwest (new from San Antonio’s Trinity University Press) by sometime Observer contributor Char Miller, who currently directs of the Environmental Analysis program at Pomona College in Claremont, California. Miller will deliver a talk at 7:30 Thursday evening at Trinity’s Holt Center, and at the festival on Saturday at 2:45.
