What a great way for the community to come together sharing the love of reading and writing!! The San Antonio Book Festival unites readers and writers in a celebration of ideas, books, libraries, and literary culture. The San Antonio Book Festival, which will take place on Saturday, April 8, has released its extensive 2017 schedule of events to the public. To celebrate the growing event’s fifth year, officials created an easy and accessible way of navigating the festival’s many happenings.
The events for this year’s festival encompass a variety of themes, many of which are politically charged and pertain to current social issues. Julissa Arce will address immigration during a session on her novel, “My (Underground) American Dream: My True Story as an Undocumented Immigrant Who Became a Wall Street Executive,” from 10-10:45 a.m. in the West Terrace of Central Library.
For those craving more lighthearted topics, Central Market will host several cooking sessions at its food tent in the Library Plaza. Festival goers can incorporate both heavy and more laid-back topics into their schedule, depending on how they want to structure their personalized festival experience.
