EVENT Houston Indie Book Festival

Celebrate literacy at the Fifth Annual Houston Indie Book Festival on Saturday, April 14 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 
Menil Park.  

This year’s festival is set to correspond with the Menil Collection’s Open House event. Alongside the book fair, visitors can enjoy outdoor art exhibits, tours of the Menil campus, art demonstrations, live music, food trucks and much more!

Cosponsored by NANO Fiction and Gulf Coast, the festival showcases the efforts of writers, artists, teachers, community members and cultural groups working to make the arts and humanities a vibrant part of the Houston community.

This year’s festival also offers a new “Children’s Area” with day-long programming, including face painting, guided poetry workshops for children, a Book Binding Workshop with the Houston Book Arts Guild, and readings by authors Ana Maria Rodriguez and Andrea White.

For the adults, the festival will have readings by poet and nonfiction author Laurie Clements Lambeth, as well as fiction authors Justin Sirois and Andrew Porter. Local indie authors and publishers will give a panel discussion on how to submit manuscripts to small presses and the art of self-publishing. A second panel discussion will present editors from local literary journals that will guide the audience through the submission process, and talk about expectations from literary editors.
