The Texas Book Festival Goes Online for Its 25th Anniversary

For its 25th anniversary, the Texas Book Festival will not be taking over the Texas Capitol. Instead, it’s asking readers to curl up with a good book and festival programming from the comfort and safety of their own homes.

The decision to make the festival virtual is due to rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in Texas. However, to make up for the loss of bookworm-to-bookworm interaction, the celebration is being extended to a 16-day digital program starting on October 31.

A Conversation with Austinite Turk Pipkin, a Former Juggling Clown Who Became a Writer, Actor, and Humanitarian

A West Texas native, Pipkin grew up in San Angelo and on his family’s ranch at the headwaters of the South Llano River. His tendencies as a class clown led to a career as a juggling comedian, Hollywood screenwriter and actor, and film director. He’s shared stages with Robin Williams and Harry Anderson; held recurring roles on HBO’s The Sopranos and The Leftovers; and even written a New York Times best-selling book with a famous country musician/golfing buddy—The Tao of Willie: A Guide to Happiness in Your Heart.
