I’m excited to have both of my new picture books, Fire Truck vs. Dragon and All of a Sudden and Forever: Help and Healing after the Oklahoma City Bombing, involved in this upcoming campaign celebrating Austin authors and their 2020 titles.
The Library Foundation, along with the Austin Public Library and the Mayor’s Office, is excited to announce the Mayor’s Book Club Read Local campaign, featuring a list of over thirty books written by Austin authors this year.
The expansion of the Mayor’s Book Club to include all books published by Austin authors in 2020 gives us the opportunity to promote Austin’s rich literary scene and, in particular, many Austin authors whose titles might not have gotten the attention they deserve due to COVID-19.
Mayor’s Book Club readings, panel discussions and author conversations will take place this fall. Details coming soon!
