Hill Country Book Festival

The first annual Hill Country Book Festival was Oct. 11 at the Georgetown Public Library in Georgetown, Texas. Participating authors/illustrators included Liz Garton Scanlon, Cynthia and Greg Leitich Smith, Don Tate, P. J. Hoover, and Deborah Frontiera.

First up, we have my husband and sometimes co-author, Greg Leitich Smith, entering the library. Gorgeous, isn’t it? (I’m talking about the library this time).

Here’s a peek at rising star Liz Garton Scanlon, wowing the crowd. Read a Cynsations interview with Liz.

Illustrator Don Tate reads his wonderful picture book Black All Around, written by Patricia Hubbell (Lee & Low, 2003). Read a Cynsations interview with Don. Note: you can also find Don at The Brown Bookshelf!

And here’s Don again with debut author P.J. Hoover, who will launch her first novel, The Forgotten Worlds Book 1: The Emerald Tablet (Blooming Tree/CBAY Books, 2008) at 4 p.m. Oct. 26 at BookPeople in Austin.
