First Border Book Festival in Brownsville

The Brownsville Border Book Festival is hosted by the Mexican Consulate and the University of Texas-Brownsville. Located at the university campus ITEC Center at Palm Blvd and Mexico Drive, the event runs through Saturday, October 15.
The festival offers a series of lectures by visiting authors, book signings, art exhibits and book vendors. It celebrates the written word, in English and Spanish, and the multicultural lifestyle that defines the Rio Grande Valley.

The Mexican Consulate and the university plan to make this an annual event. Plan now to attend this great event and support the effort to promote literacy, reading and the arts.
Attendees will have the opportunity to spend time with the authors, vendors and the host staff. I plan to be at the Paragraphs on Padre Blvd booth again tomorrow.
