We’re helpful (and slightly bossy) sorts here at Malvern Books, and we’re always looking for new and exciting ways to keep y’all entertained. To that end, we’ve gone and planned your weekend-after-next for you. Curious? Well, we suggest (firmly, but without menace) that on October 26th and 27th you head to the Texas Book Festival, held in and around the State Capitol. While there, you can eat your weight in barbecued whatsits, take part in a spooktastic Lit Crawl with R.L. Stine, and hear talks from excellent authors like Jonathan Lethem, Ayana Mathis, Meg Wolitzer, and James McBride. Best of all, you can stop by Booth 500 (Exhibitor Tent 5, near the corner of Colorado and 11th Streets) and say hello to Malvern Books! We’d love to make your acquaintance. And we’ll be selling heaps of outstanding poetry, fiction, and graphic novels, so it’s probably best to start warming up your totes-full-tote-bag-toting muscles now.
And speaking of things to do and places to go, doesn’t the lovely bookstore pictured above look like the perfect place to shelter from today’s inclement weather? We’re open till 8pm tonight, and so far we have absolutely no leaks.
