Texas Writing and Book Conferences

Because I live in the great state of Texas, I believe it has the best of everything. And that, my friends, includes awesome writing and book conferences. Today, I’ve grabbed a list of great upcoming conferences in the Lone Star State. I’ll definitely be hitting a few of these puppies:

What: Austin Teen Book Fest When: Oct. 1, 2011 Where: Austin
What: Texas Book Festival When: Oct 22-23 Where: Austin
What: ALA Midwinter When: Jan 20-24 Where: Dallas
What: ConDFW XI When: Feb 17-19, 2012 Where: Dallas
What: DFWcon When: May 19-20, 2012 Where: Dallas

Will you be at any of these conferences? Know of any others and Texas? Let us know!


  1. We'll be at Austin Teen Book Festival, taking the family to the Texas Book Festival and then headed to ALA midwinter!!!

  2. I hear that Tori & Lindsay might go. That ATBF eent sounds awesome. Wish I could make it, but too much going on. I hear there will be free music too. I wanted my friends with the TX pop punk band "Archimedes Watch Out" to play there, but that never got arranged. Have fun and drive safe. Great way to spend quality time with the fam-damily.
