AUSTIN – Did you know that there are currently over 1,000 Texas authors? They range from famous authors such as Larry McMurty to the dozen plus authors that won awards this year in the first Texas Assoc. of Authors book contest.
The subject range for Texas authors can be just as diverse as the terrain that makes up this great state; children’s books, spiritual thrillers, fiction, mystery, autobiographies, self help and so much more.
For the first time in history, a variety of Texas authors are meeting to celebrate their heritage and accomplishments on October 26, 2012 from 7-10 PM at the Hickory St Restaurant on 8th & Congress in Austin as an unofficial kickoff party to the Texas Book Festival weekend.
Join them for this fun event featuring the HooDoo Boys band performing live on the patio. You can shop their mini book store and pick up one of the many award winning books that are available for sale. The event is free, donations are encouraged.
