Since 2015, the Dallas Festival of Ideas has aimed at shaping the city of the future by igniting, uniting, and energizing the people of Dallas through the power of ideas. In 2019, the 5th annual city-wide event will have a new look and expanded content, incorporating the Dallas Book Festival into its programming and conducting its familiar city-track explorations over a week-long period. This year’s City Tracks–the Physical City, the Welcoming City, the Literary City, and Science in the City–will be spotlighted on separate weeknights in different venues, featuring out-of-town and local speakers and panelists. A celebration of books and authors, also from Dallas and beyond, will be the capstone event on Saturday of this first-ever Dallas Festival of Books and Ideas.
