Local Authors Day

It’s not too late to add some native flavor to your summer reading. Brazos Bookstore will host its first Local Authors Day to give literary fans a chance to meet, greet and hear readings from a healthy crop of Houston and Gulf Coast writers. No taste will be left unsatisfied, as the lineup will include writers of every genre, from poetry to mystery to creative nonfiction and everything in between. Among the authors appearing will be Burton Chapman (Telephone Road, Texas), Daniel Jason (Texas Secedes), John Moroney (Power Struggle: World Energy in the 21st Century), T. L. James (The MPire Trilogy) and Stella Brice (Outgrow). 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Brazos Bookstore, 2421 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-523-0701 or visit www.brazosbookstore.com. Free.

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.
