The Texas Book Festival takes place Nov. 5 and 6 on the grounds of the Texas State Capitol and along Congress Avenue Award-winning authors in the lineup include Don DeLillo, Diana Kennedy, Thomas Dolby, Padma Lakshmi and R.L. Stine. More than 280 writers—including chefs, actors, YouTube-stars and more—are part of the lineup.
“We are hosting some big marquee names this year, and it’s exciting to see the trend of prominent artists—actors, comedians, performance artists—writing books,” says Lois Kim, the Festival’s executive director. “But one of the best things about our deep and diverse lineup is the opportunity for discovery. There is so much talent in this list, and we can’t wait for people to dive in and find their next favorite author.”
One of the nation’s premier literary events and longest-running book festivals in the country, the Texas Book Festival is free and open to the public. The Festival brings more than 40,000 attendees, live music, kids’ activities, food trucks, book signings and sales, and 100 exhibitors in and around the State Capitol.
