Houston Indie Book Festival

Bookworms will want to be early birds for the Houston Indie Book Festival. With all the deals from local and national journals, independent presses and bookstores, you’ll want to make sure you get there before the good pickings are gone. Kaboom, Brazos Bookstore, Arte Público Press, Inprint, Houston Institute for Culture and more will be emptying their shelves at low prices.

The event will also feature readings by local authors, and there are rumors of Persepolis author Marjane Satrapi stopping by before her reading at the Hobby (and by “rumors” we mean a flyer that said “possible appearance”). 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Domy, 1709 Westheimer. For information, call 713-523-3669 or visit www.domystore.com. Free.
Sat., April 12, 10 a.m., 2008

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
