The Pflugerville Book Pfestival will showcase books and writers for all age groups and interests from 1 – 6 p.m. on Apr. 16 and 17 at the Pflugerville Public Library, 1008 Pfluger St.
The weekend festival, free and open to the public, is packed with writers, book signings, panel discussions and interviews. Gale Albright, president of Sisters in Crime: Heart of Texas chapter, will moderate the panel “Sisters in Crime: Women Crime Fiction Writers” with award-winning authors Meg Gardiner, Alexandra Burt, Janice Hamrick, and Helen Currie Foster from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 16.
On Sunday, April 17, there will be panels on mystery in fantasy and science fiction novels, international crime fiction, and the greatest crime-fiction novels of all time.
Even though the Pflugerville Public Library has hosted writers before with special programs, this is its inaugural regional, two-day book festival. “We love featuring authors for signings, interviews and writing workshops” said Bette McDowell, Pflugerville Adult Services librarian. “When Hopeton Hay of KAZI Book Review reached out, we were excited to form a partnership to bring in a large group of Texas authors that our patrons hadn’t had a chance to visit with yet. We loved the idea of bringing together authors that write for a wide array of age ranges and that represent several genres of fiction and nonfiction.” Even though the book festival will be held in Pflugerville, it has something to offer everyone in the Central Texas area.
