Fantastic is all I can say about the 2014 second annual San Antonio Book Festival held yesterday, April 5, at the Central Library in downtown San Antonio, Texas! Hundreds of people showed up despite the chilly weather. Make that thousands. I just read in today’s Express-News that there were close to 8,000 people attending.
Over 90 national and regional authors did readings, signings, panels, and autographed books for the booklovers who attended the readings and bought books. Colorful tents were everywhere including a “cooking demonstration” tent. There were plenty of activities for the children. Music filled the air and food trucks catered to anyone with an appetite. Hundreds of people roamed the grounds and the crowds continued to grow as the day went on.Here are some pictures of me with some award-winning authors and illustrators, (left to right) Brian Floca, Carolyn Dee Flores, Duncan Tonatiuh, Lupe Ruiz-Flores, and Malin Alegria.
