The Dallas Book Festival, a daylong celebration of literature, arts and culture, has released a comprehensive schedule of 75 events packed into a remarkable eight-hour day. The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
More than three dozen authors will appear at the festival in individual presentations or on panels. They include Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lawrence Wright, humorist Adam Mansbach, novelists Jessica Knoll, Curtis Sittenfeld, and Omar Tyree, military historian Andrew Bacevich, nonfiction writer Joshua Hammer, celebrity ghostwriter David Ritz, and Bryan Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative.
Other highlights include storytelling for children, concerts, craft projects, performances by the Anita Martinez Ballet Folklorico, and discussions ranging from sportswriting and hip-hop to quilting and getting around Dallas without a car.
With the exception of the sportswriting panel that includes a $10 breakfast, the entire day is free and open to the public. Click here to see the full schedule of events.
