Like so many avid Austin readers, we’re looking forward to the annual Texas Book Festival, happening this weekend October 27-28. We’ll be slinging books over in the Penguin booth, stop by and say hello! Being in the center of a whirlwind of books is something we are very much accustomed to, so if you’re feeling overwhelmed by the huge selection of new reading material, come talk to us. We’ll tell you what books we’ve loved and can recommend. You can also come by to meet some wonderful Penguin authors at one of the many in-booth signings.
We hope you’ll swing by and spend some time with your local independent bookstore while you’re at the festival. We’d love to see you! Here’s a quick schedule (highly printable and pocket-friendly) of the in-booth signings. We’ll have big stacks of all of these books in the Penguin booth, along with many other great reads, so be sure to visit us!
