Twenty-Five years ago, a group of writers christened May as Texas Authors month. It was not until this year that some authors decided to re-establish the event. There has been little to no fanfare for the month, and we would like to change that for 2020.
As we continue to work on creating a physical store for Texas Authors, we have narrowed our search down to a couple of communities, one of which is Seguin, Texas. This historic town is going through a revitalization that can match many other cities as a destination. We want to help with that process.
Seguin is a rich part of Texas history located west of San Antonio, off of I-10 as you head from San Antonio to Houston.
After meeting with city officials, we have decided to help create a Holiday Weekend Travel Experience. On May 23, 2020, we will host the Lone Star Book Festival establishing a new tradition for Texas authors and artists.
LSBF will be held in Seguin at the Civic Center from 9 AM to 2 PM.
Our goal is to make the Lone Star Book Festival event in Seguin grow into a Texas Authors Book Festival that rivals any other in the state, including the Texas Book Festival held in October. Yes, that will take time, but if we can incorporate other activities and fun events that are writing and reading related, we can do it.
November 2, 2019 a Parade & Celebration will be held in Houston, Texas celebrating being a published author and reminding America about the joys of reading, buying books and much more.
This year’s theme is “America, Reading is…” is designed to get America to think and learn of all of the great values that reading has. Relieving stress, educational, fun and so much more.
The parade will go from the City Hall and winding through downtown to end at the Discovery Green for lunch and speakers. We are working to create the largest bookstore for Indie Authors. This store will be open for the parade attendees and their families, and to the general public. Our goal is to push book sales and to give Indie Authors more exposure.
