Chez Zee is having some author events, including James Magnuson (He visited us and we discussed Famous Writers I Have Known). Thanks to Cindy V. for bringing this to the Blogger's attention! Here is the link: http://www.chez-zee.com/join-us-for-these-exciting-events-at-the-gallery-chez-zee-2/
Dominick Smith, author of The Last Painting of Sara De Vos, will speak at the Georgetown Public Library, on May 12. Doors open at 1:30 PM and tickets are $15.
The TEXAS BOOK FESTIVAL will be held in and around the Capitol Building November 4-6 2016
, at the Laura Bush Library, when Jo Ivester will discuss her book, The Outskirts of Hope.The book is a memoir of Aura Kruger and her family's life in the small, all-Black town of Mound Bayou, Mississippi, in the 1960s. Those of us who knew the incredible Aura know the basics of her story there, but Jo's book has captured it in a deeply meaningful, relevant way. Promises to be an amazing conversation!

I want to express the library's thanks to everyone who attended Book Buzz 2016. We value your participation, and we'll definitely alert the group when we have dates for future events.
I can forward a digital copy of the Book Buzz handout to anyone who would like one; just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Included on the four-page handout, along with book covers and blurbs, is information about Penguin Random House's First Look Book Club and their Ask a Librarian feature.
Oh, and you can find Library Reads, the monthly list of ten librarian-recommended new and forthcoming titles, at libraryreads.org.

This Buzz will be very much like last year's: attendees will hear the inside scoop on forthcoming books from our Penguin Random House rep--and everyone will get a free "Keep Calm and Read On" tote bag and a pre-publication sampler book. We'll also have refreshments (I understand that the cheesecake will be back by popular demand) and drawings for door prizes.
You can register online here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/book-buzz-discovering-new-stars-tickets-20624650886 (the link is also on the library's Facebook page). Or, if you'd rather, call the reference desk at 512.218.7000 and we can complete the registration for you. Hope to see many of you there!
