The 2017 Texas Book Festival is Saturday & Sunday, Nov. 4-5. Check the schedule to plan your weekend. I’ll be presenting two new books this year, Armadillo World Headquarters: A Memoir, by Eddie Wilson & Jesse Sublett. Check the online schedule in advance for the location my presentations. Saturday, 11 AM -12 noon, Eddie Wilson and I will be sharing our panel with Donna Marie Miller, author of The Broken Spoke, Austin’s Legendary Honky-Tonk. James White, founder the Broken Spoke, will be with us, too. The panel was saddled with an incredibly awful name, which the festival stuck with despite asking my opinion, then ignoring it, but please come anyway. I am awfully proud of our work on Armadillo World Headquarters. There will be lots of ground to cover, and I’m sure the room will be filled to the ceiling with crazy memories and stories.
Also on Saturday, 3-4 PM, more crazy nocturnal adventures will be discussed when we celebrate the publication of my latest book, Esther’s Follies: The Laughs, the Gossip, and the Story Behind Texas’ Most Celebrated Comedy Troupe, and we’ll be sharing the spotlight with Amy Stone, author of Corynation, the story of the outrageous side of San Antonio’s annual Fiesta. Our moderator will be Michelle Newby, who runs the Texas Book Lover blog. Keep up with her on Twitter and by the way, you can tweet me anytime, too. Just call me @Jesse_Sublett.
After each sessions, the authors will go to the book-signing tent, where you can come get your books personally signed by us. The Festival always has lots of helpful, trained volunteers to help get people where they need to go.
