300.12 Texas Book Festival

It’s Texas Book Festival time again! This is an absolutely fantastic event that is fun for the entire family.

This annual book-a-palooza was the brain child of former First Lady, Laura Bush. I think the coolest thing about the festival is that it gets people excited about reading and raises tons of cash for Texas libraries.  Since the fest started they’ve awarded over $2.5 million in grant money to state libraries. That is downright inspiring!

The festival will have everything from book signings, panel discussions, author readings, and more.

Admission: Free

When: today, October 27th and tomorrow, October 28th

Location:
The Capitol
Congress, between 10th
 & 11th
 Streets
Austin, Texas 78701

I am a realtor here in Austin, and clients are always asking for suggestions on what to do around town. So, I thought I would blog about my experiences, recommendations and what you have to do before you can call yourself a true Austinite.
