Books, Books, and More Books

by Mandy Broughton

This Friday and Saturday, Lone Star College, Kingwood Campus, is hosting a book festival. When I say book festival, I’m talking over 150 authors! From the brochures, it looks to be an exciting event for the entire family. Books, music, animals–real animal, not just the authors–will all be on hand.

Friday starts with keynote speaker, Larry Dierker. Sports fans–you won’t be disappointed by the rest of Friday’s lineup. While yours truly and fellow Space City Scriber, Monica Shaughnessy, will be sitting on a Friday afternoon panel, my eyes are on the football stars that will be found elsewhere. Dan Pastorini and Jackie Sherrill are hosting a panel, “Aggies and Oilers: God and Football in Texas.” Wow! This should draw a huge crowd from our little southeast portion of Texas.

Saturday is a full day of children’s authors and events for all our future readers. What could be more fun than a petting zoo and books? More books!

And some of us (read Monica) got a really cool poster to promo the event.



If you’re in the Houston area, we’d love to see you there. Monica and I are Friday at 3 p.m. in the music wing. Stop by and say hello.

I write mysteries and sci-fi for kids and adults. Give me a character and I'll find the best way to put her in a mystery. Or kill her off. Depends on my mood.
