Texas Word Wrangler Book Festival
Sept. 29-30, 2023
Join us Sept. 29-30, 2023, for our biggest event of the year, the Texas Word Wrangler Book Festival. Our "word wranglers" are talented authors from all over the state of Texas who come to Giddings to share their passion for literature. Authors are selected by the Word Wrangler Committee to headline the festival. When not speaking, authors will be available at their booths to sell their books, sign autographs, and take pictures. Various book readings and talks are scheduled throughout the day Friday. We accept a wide range of book genres including: murder-mystery, fantasy, science fiction, cookbooks, self-help books, junior fiction, and picture books. Many local schools bring students to meet the authors, learn about the writing process, and inspire them to love reading and writing. Author submissions for the 2023 festival begin in March 2023.
Friday, Sept. 29: Festival 9A-5P
Saturday, Sept. 30: Festival 9A-2P
The festival is open to the public from 9A-5P Friday, and from 9A-2P Saturday. There is no charge for parking or entrance to the festival. Tour our beautiful library and meet all of the authors as you walk around the festival and stop at the different authors' booths. Sections of the library will be reserved for author talks and readings. Plan to purchase books for friends and family to support these local authors.
