Twenty-Five years ago, a group of writers christened May as Texas Authors month. It was not until this year that some authors decided to re-establish the event. There has been little to no fanfare for the month, and we would like to change that for 2020.
As we continue to work on creating a physical store for Texas Authors, we have narrowed our search down to a couple of communities, one of which is Seguin, Texas. This historic town is going through a revitalization that can match many other cities as a destination. We want to help with that process.
Seguin is a rich part of Texas history located west of San Antonio, off of I-10 as you head from San Antonio to Houston.
After meeting with city officials, we have decided to help create a Holiday Weekend Travel Experience. On May 30, 2020, we will host the Lone Star Book Festival establishing a new tradition for Texas authors and artists.
LSBF will be held in Seguin at the Civic Center from 9 AM to 2 PM, it may be extended to 4 PM depending on the crowd size.
Our goal is to make the Lone Star Book Festival event in Seguin grow into a Texas Authors Book Festival that rivals any other in the state, including the Texas Book Festival held in October. Yes, that will take time, but if we can incorporate other activities and fun events that are writing and reading related, we can do it.
