Texas Book Festival 2017


We're excited for the Texas Book Festival taking place this weekend here in Austin, not least of all because we'll be busy hosting events! Join us Saturday night for the TBF Lit Crawl; we'll be at Fast Folks (1201 E. Cesar Chavez St.) from 8:30-9:15 pm talking Inspiration. We'll be hanging out with authors sam sax, Kristen Radtke, Sarah Rafael García, Mike Scalise, and Tillie Walden and discussing the inspiration behind their work and the techniques they use to conjure new ideas.

After the Lit Crawl, fields editor Sean Redmond will be DJing with Miranda Fisher (editor of punk zine Casting Couch, bassist for the Zoltars/NIKE, and vocalist for World Premiere) at Drinks Lounge (2001 E. Cesar Chavez) from 10 pm to close as part of a new monthly event taking place the first Saturday of every month. American Heartbeat brings you the best in power pop, jangle pop, punk, glam, bubblegum, psych, and more - and it's this year's unofficial Lit Crawl afterparty.

Then, on Sunday, join Sean as he moderates a panel in Capitol Extension Room 2.014 from 1:15-2:00 pm. New Approaches to Nonfiction brings together authors Greg Garrett (Living with the Living Dead) and Edward McPherson (The History of the Future) to discuss American culture past, present, and future, with a lens toward our apocalyptic tendencies, zombie culture, and urban landscapes. We hope you can join us for this exciting Texas Book Festival event.
