Let’s Get Lit! Lubbock Festival Books Big Talent
Literacy Lubbock has just announced the next chapter in the Lubbock Book Festival. This event promotes the written word, connect authors and readers, showcase local authors and fundraise for Literacy Lubbock’s adult education programs.
The festival will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5, at the Cotton Court Hotel in downtown Lubbock. A special kickoff Prologue Party for donors, sponsors, VIP badge holders and authors is set for 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3, at the Texas Tech Museum.
This year’s festival will showcase more than 30 authors including:
· New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Darynda Jones
· USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde
· New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Linda Broday
· USA Today bestselling author A.R. Hall
The festival will highlight 19 local writers, including award-winning and fan-favorite authors Shannon Myers, Lance Stanford, M.E. Carter and James Stoddard. With authors ranging from fantasy to westerns, from romance to children’s books, the festival have something for everyone to enjoy.
General attendees can meet with authors, buy signed books and interact with other readers in the glitzy Cotton Court Hotel Ballroom, which will be transformed to match the decadence of this year’s theme: Golden Age Hollywood. VIP attendees will receive numerous perks, including early admission on Saturday and Sunday, exclusive access to the invitation-only Prologue Party, a copy of the charity anthology “All That Glitters,” a limited-edition T-shirt and other bookish swag from attending authors.
General tickets cost $5 for each day; VIP tickets cost $60.
Festival proceeds will help fund Literacy Lubbock’s free adult education programs, including teaching adults how to read, tutoring them for the GED Test, and teaching English as a second language.
