Calling All Texans!

Everything in Texas is bigger, including the size of the state itself; It’s ginormous! That means y’all who live there are not afraid of doing a little driving. Right?

You should drive to Dallas this Saturday!!

Why? For the First Annual Arts & Letters Live BooksmART Festival!! This Saturday, from 11 am to 5pm, for FREE!

Who will be there? I’m glad you asked:

Rick Riordan
Norton Juster
Laurie Halse Anderson
David Wiesner
Jerry Pinkney
Gene Luen Yang
Cynthia Leitich Smith
Duncan Tonatiuh
Antonio Sacre
Joe McDermott
Jan Bozarth and Faeren
Ann Marie Newman
John Bramblitt
Gretchen Goetz
Dallas Theater Center

Doesn’t that make all of you who don’t live near Dallas want to start driving or flying now? If you need further encouragement, check out the day’s schedule of events!

::raises right hand:: I solemnly swear to try my best not to whine about the heat. Honest. (I do love the South, but cannot fathom how you survive summer!) If you see me looking like I’m going to swoon, please hand me some ice.

See you there!!

  1. Sounds like a great time!! Wish I could be there! I hope they have enough interest to do again next year. Will you be at ALA this year?

  2. Wow! What a great line-up…..a cool front hit our area today will be under 100….hotter Saturday….This is why Texans drink Iced Tea…you could not survive summer without it.

  3. The BooksmART festival was fantastic! Thank you for coming down to TX and sharing your work with us. I’d love to know if work on your book about writing is already under production or still a project in the future. Thanks again for enduring the heat for southern booklovers. 🙂
