Books

READ ALL ABOUT IT November is an ideal month for books: The weather is cooler, a perfect excuse for staying in and escaping into the world of your favorite page-turner. But if bumming indoors isn't your style, then mind your p's and q's and hit the road for these literary celebrations. Austin hosts the seventh annual Texas Book Festival November 14-17. Rick Bragg, Robert Caro, Sandra Cisneros, Kinky Friedman, Walter Mosley, E. Annie Proulx, and others, including a bevy of children's and cookbook authors, will be on tap for a long weekend of reading and merriment. Can't get enough of Texas scribes? Then dart over to San Marcos for a peek at the manuscripts of Bud Shrake and Bill Wittliff. Presented by Southwest Texas State University's Southwestern Writers Collection, "Texas Bookends: Bud Shrake and Bill Wittliff" shows off original drafts crafted by the Texas Book Festival's honorees. Swing by San Antonio's Institute of Texan Cultures November 19 to check out the opening of "Photographs and Paragraphs: The Images of I. N. Hall and the Imagery of O. Henry." And on November 25, the San Antonio Public Library kicks off its Centennial Celebration with a reading by actress Debra Winger at the Empire Theater.
