Texas Book Festival

Texas Book Festival

Setting (in and around the Texas Capitol), timing (autumn with its mild weather) and characters (big-name authors, plus thousands of book lovers) all come together to make the free Texas Book Festival one of the best times to be in Austin. Former U.S. and Texas first lady Laura Bush is the founder.
