The Texas Book Festival Goes Online for Its 25th Anniversary

June 25, 2020 | By Sabrina LeBoeuf

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.
